A while ago one of the people from my old board game designers group got interested in the facebook phenomenon. He sent out invitations, and curiosity got the better of me a few weeks go.
Probably the most fascinating thing has been how many casual acquaintances from high school have been friending me out of blue. I recognize names, but often little else. Cornell, on the other hand, seems to have a much lower representation, although msphat seems to have found me at just about the same time I found her, and oddly almost the same time I’m getting around to writing about it.
I’m still rather wary of ‘applications’ Mostly they look like big time sinks, and I’m somewhat paranoid about getting involved in another ‘thing’ – I’ll have more to say about that (hopefully) shortly.
