Lack of involvement...

As I said before, I don't quite like "blogging" or the online communities. I found out pretty quickly after I signed up for facebook and myspace that I spent way too much time "surfing" when I could have been doing other things that are more valuable with my time. Now I just kind of sign in and out sporadically.

I used to keep an online journal in high school. It wasn't known site like xanga or livejournal I kind of wanted to be anonymous. One day I stumbled upon this website called At the time it had something like two or three hundred users. Logging in was a pain in the butt due to server overflow. I really liked conversing with people I didn't know. I think it made it an unbiased medium for people to voice their opinions without the backlash of prejudice.

As you can see, I'm not a big blogger and never have been. But I think that this course will enable me to have a different prospective about the online communities.

Anyhoo, after I thought about what I should write in this post, I wanted to include a copy of the "Map of Online Communities" photo here. I thought it was funny and quite brilliant! And all I had to do was google "Map of Online Communities" and link it here. It popped up as the first search. Nothing about the internet surprises me anymore to be honest.
