About Me

Well it just does not pay to complain because frankly, NO ONE CARES! I was raised in New York, and made the biggest mistake of my life in 1990 by moving to Indiana. Well, That's enough about me at this time.

Tweet me a message!

Are you heavily involved with multiple social networking forums? If not how can you possibly get through your day?

Your Blog(s) to tell your story of the day, FaceBook, MySpace or whatever is hot this week to keep up with your network, the rest of the day, and of course the new internet must be a part of Tweeter!

It was silly enough when politicians tried to show they were just regular folk, with pages on FaceBook and MySpace, but now they are moving to Tweeter. For the uninitiated Tweeter is supposed to capture the moments of your life between your blogs! A Tweet is a short message no more than 148 characters in length.

A whole industry has grown up around Tweeting. There are apps for almost all Browsers and platforms. I have found great joy in TweetDeck, and various apps for IE8 and FireFox.

So many Tweets are flying through the internet cloud at any one time that Tweet has lately been suffering some server overloads and delays.

Ultimatly I am forced to ask why? Don't get me wrong, I like Tweeter, I’m hooked. I tweet all the time (tiredoldguy), but really why? Do we need this level of minutia in our lives today? Social Networking is great, and lots of fun. But have we gone a little overboard just because we can?
