I’m trying. Really I am. I’ve read Robert Scoble’s stuff and watched his videos for a few years now and, for the most part, I’ve really enjoyed what he does. But you know how you can say “I could eat pizza every day of the year” and then you’re sick of it after a week or so? Well that’s how I’m getting with nearly every post being about Facebook. Do a Google search for Scoble and Facebook. Here, I’ll save you the trouble:
“Results 1 – 10 of about 1,700,000 for scoble facebook. (0.07 seconds)” 1.7 Million!
I’ve joined. I’ve tried. Maybe the social networks just aren’t for me. I though MySpace was a disaster. Probably the ugliest site on the internet. But look how huge it is. I’m part of LinkedIn, but I don’t babysit my account every day like I probably should. Twitter? I get it, but it seems like being a member of Twitter would get old quickly.
I still like using email. I like text messaging. I like having a Blog. I love RSS.
Maybe it’s generational. Maybe, after being in the tech field for 21 years I’ve lost my tolerance for distractions. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a Scoble fan, but I’m hoping the subject changes once he takes on his most important role – the father of a new baby.
