I am not an early adopter when it comes to technology. A very sad fact. I am more middle-of-the-pack. (Part of it, too, is that things like My Space had no value for me. What was I going to DO with it? No utility. Plus, it's ugly.)
So I am finally catching up on social networking / bloggy things like Twitter, good reader and such (readers blow... someone needs to do a better job here), Facebook (I just joined and my friend Hannah sarcastically wrote me, "Welcome to Facebook...it's the future.").
I thing I have liked for a while is 43 Things. Maybe because I am a nut for lists. Love, love, love lists. And checking things off. 43 Things is the best because you can make your life's to-do list and when you enter things like "Change my name for one year" ior "Go to Rome" or "Open a store" it connects you with people who want to do the same thing.
The BEST LIST is that of Erik Benson, aka Buster McLeod. You should read what he's working on and also click on the tab that reads "I've done 184 things." Very amusing. And inspiring, actually.
So... how is everyone connected?
What social networking stuff do you even bother with?
What's proven useful (or at least amusing)?
