I just couldn’t hold out any longer. I’m usually an early adopter of all techy things, just because I love being able to say: “Oh yeah, [insert trendy Web 2.0 service]? I’ve been on that for ages.” I mean, after all, I do have my very own self-hosted blog (thanks to the generosity of my friend Mark Lorenc)!
But lately I’ve just been so pressed for time (as you can see from the fact that I never blog), that I have kind of given up on creating accounts on all new services just to check them out. I passed up MySpace. I shrugged off Twitter (although I am thinking about that one because they also have a Facbook API [like everyone these days] and I think they probably have a more robust functionality set than the Facbook ‘status’ tool). I’m just kind of burned out on Web 2.0 at this point. But since I’ve got “innovation” in my job title, I can’t in all good conscience ignore the craze that’s even bigger than MySpace.
So here’s my profile page: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1161307629.
Friend me if you like. I don’t care who you are, I just want to look cool and popular so send me those invites all you crazy web cats, I’m ready for you. I just downloaded a gay-sounding but ridiculously fun “Hug Me” application where you can do things like throw Michael Jackson or Throw Britney Spears at your friends.
I already threw a little MJ to Ian and Darien. You could be next.
(I’m also writing this post partly to test the “WordPress to Facebook” plugin that should let this thing show up on my Facbook profile without me having to do anything. God I love technology.)
Citizens of Facebook: you have been warned.
