Ok. So, I just signed up for a Twitter account the other day… finally. I feel like such a noob.
Just to clear my tech credibility, I’ve known about Twitter for a long time now; I just haven’t had a need for my own Twitter account. My friends are mostly on the Facebook wagon, and the only reason I now have a Twitter account is because I’m finding more and more conference and event notifications being posted on Twitter instead of their web site blogs / RSS feeds. Oh well, it was about time.
However, this small activity gave me pause in my life…
Seriously, I’m starting to feel like I’ve passed my prime in terms of technology trends. I don’t do the 300+ texts per month; I just now got on the Twitter bandwagon; My Facebook page is not littered with ever little app that I find (I’m selective like that); and I still read books on printed paper.
Maybe I’m just getting a little cynical in my “old age”. After all, In my day, we didn’t have this obesity problem with kids playing video games all the time. We enjoyed our 16-bit goodness and savored in the knowledge that we could beat our games in just a few hours and then have the rest of the day to go outside.
