Blogs are pretty good hey, but so disappointing when people stop posting. Never mind, plenty more.
We now have youtube to look at whatever someone wants to put up on the web and it comes with a groups facility. Not looked at it, truely, but I have heard of p0rn0 tube as well. There is My Space and a recent discovery of mine is GayRomeo, an non-American site for a change.
These are all good things, so long as you have enough time to go out and get things to put on your blog, upload to youtube and participate in society so that you have something to contribute to your space, My Space.
Is there a serious danger of people not doing anything apart from what they have to do to survive and use the net? The net certainly takes a chunk out of my life, but then I don't have pets now, nor a garden to look after. I certainly don't read as much as I used to, well, hard copy reading anyway. Our social life is not what it was ten years ago, but that is for other reasons.
A visiting friend recently mentioned the name of a NSW town or something and wondered where the name came from. In the time it took him to do number ones, I had the answer using the net, a NSW state politician from the 1930s. Too easy.
All these things mentioned above are good for me. But I wonder if they are good for society in general. Perhaps only I should have them and very few others. But then they depend on many particiapants. We live in interesting times.
