Facebook

Up until last week, I'd avoided the social internet sites. I didn't have a MySpace or a Facebook. I had the blog, of course, but I didn't really consider that. And then last week, Scott Freeman added me as a friend on his Facebook and I created an account. I guess I'm in it now.

However, there have been a couple of cool things develop.

1) I joined the Otter Creekers group. That's been kind of fun. There are a lot of people that I know, and some I don't.

2) There's a Baja Burrito group. I'm really trying to get them to open one in Bellevue.

3) And somehow, I started getting hooked up with old students of mine from MLK. I think I had one contact in my Gmail and I looked at her friends and their friends and as of today, I've been in some kind of contact with more than 37 of my former students and even started a group on Facebook.

It's been an interesting experience so far and I've enjoyed how clean the interface and profile views are (from a design perspective) especially in comparison to MySpace. So I'll keep with it for a while.

Phil, you are the evocation of a culture.
