There was a time when I was ahead of most trends. Just ahead. Not a trendsetter.
But now I'm older and more sluggish and I'm stuck in the middle.
Lately, we lemmings have been swarming the social apps. I've tried a bunch but have settled on three -- Facebook, last.fm and Twitter.
On Facebook, I have befriended 72 Joe Millers from around the world. It's pleasantly strange to see my name beside pictures of men who bear no resemblance to me, who post status updates like "Joe Miller was riding shotgun in Daryl's car, and is still cleaning his underpants..." and "Joseph Miller is like yes..roommate is gone..got da dorm myself..and aint got a final till thursday.YESSIR."
last.fm is self-explanatory and obviously awesome.
And twitter is completely baffling. It seems absolutely worthless. But I keep going back to it as if I'll find the answer there.
Anyway, I'm going to twitter -- or tweet, as they say -- our holiday trip. I'll post short dispatches and photos via phone. I'd do it on this blog, but my phone is not compatible.
You're welcome to follow, if you like.
