Since becoming connected to the internet again last month, I've been recommitted to overcoming my techno phobia. I've resisted for a long time now, but now the time has come to embrace and utilize new forms of media, as scary as they might seem. In particular I'm trying to figure out just what the heck is Twitter. My cousin was a great advocate of Twitter - he's a social marketing and internet marketing guru of sorts, and he first told me about Twitter about two years ago. I logged on at that time, once - and never got back on, because I just didn't want to figure out what it was about. Likewise, when it came to Facebook, I signed up about three years ago, logged on once, and never logged on again. Then, last year, a friend was beaming about how wonderful Facebook was, and how exciting, and I tried to have her explain it to me, but again, I was just not into listening. But I did sign up again, under my married name, and lo and behold, for the past year, I've slowly been exposing myself to the technocracy, and trying very hard to notice the positive aspects of new technology, while letting go of the phobia.
