Never say Die

Facebook, Inc.Image via Wikipedia

This news item highlighting the problem with Facebook means that we can all achieve immortality via the net.

I guess the same goes for blogging. Although one day I will finally stop putting my thoughts out for the whole world to see, those pearls of wisdom of insight will remain forever in cyberspace.
Generations after will be fortunate and privileged to peruse my special kind of insights into the modern world.
Historians will have a rich archive of material to consider.

Long live the internet.

You don't think blogger will one day jettison accounts that haven't been active for 10 years?

Are we all turning into emotional and mental exhibitionists with this kind of exposure?

Jeannie, if you are right then the world will be a poorer place.

Jen, you are right.

BTW, did I mention I was on Facebook? Just send me an email if you want to know.

I was refering more to blogging than facebook, but I guess it's about the same. We can expose as little or as much as we chose. I struggle with this regularly.
I used to be a very private person and I wonder if it's better to stay that way?

I've done the facebook thing to some degree. I think the word "friend" has totally lost it's meaning for generations to come. :P

Yes, "friendship" seems to be over used these days. I'm not one to make friends easily because intimacy that comes with real friendship is difficult for me.

choose not chose.
good grief.
I used to be a good speller.

Seems to me that intimacy becomes more difficult as we age.

As cruel as children can be at times, they are so blessed to have that uninhibited ability to make new friends and trust fearlessly.
