Mike’s travel blog (stay tuned!)
I’ll be leaving San Francisco today and will be blogging (as soon as I figure out how to upload photos, etc on the road!).
NOTE: Posting timely blog posts will be a stretch for me (I rarely log on to Facebook, let alone give updates). In fact, as far as social networking goes, I tend to agree with Dave Barry’s assessment:
“…I can also use my phone to go to Facebook and Twitter to read messages and “tweets” from a vast network of people I do not really know, updating me on their random neural firings on such issues as what they are eating. In the old pre-technology days, it would have been almost impossible to replicate Facebook or Twitter. The closest you could get would be to mail dozens of postcards a day to everybody you knew, each with a brief message about yourself like, “Finally got that haircut I’ve been putting off.” Or: “Just had a caramel frappuccino. Yum!”
The people receiving these postcards would naturally assumed that you were a moron with a narcissism disorder. But today, thanks to Facebook and Twitter, you are seen as a person engaging in “social networking.” As the technology improves, we’ll reach the point when you don’t even need a phone to socially network. You’ll have some kind of device implanted in your brain so you can receive other people’s brain waves directly as they occur. You will know everything about them. You will know when they fart.”
