Busy, Busy in the Web 2.0 World

I knew eventually it would have to happen, I had to step across into the Web 2.0 world. Long before the MySpaces and the Youtubes morphed into my world, I reluctantly gave my email address, name and small bio details to chatrooms and messenger sites all over the net, only to never return. I just didn’t get the point of communicating with people I didn’t know when I could hardly communicate with the ones I did know ! But at least I could say I tried. So you could imagine my horror when the myspace and youtube sites appeared. Off I went again registering away on sites I had nothing to say or do on, more blank pages . It’s true, I even have a second life character that has remained stationary ever since I created her. Who knows how many sites I am registered on, ten computers later my passwords and login details are long gone and hopefully buried in a landfill. I come from a traditional media background , where we can hide behind camera lenses and not alter egos. My main bone of contention was that my name was associated with everything I said and did on the net. I hate the fact I can be traced. You really can’t be anonymous on the net, unless of course you run a Russian porn site (but that’s a whole other story). So I merrily went on my way building web 1 authority sites. But , soon new and improved web 2.0 started to surface, Squidoo, Digg It, Stumble Upon, sites that didn’t take forever to master or need masses amounts of content to be recognized. OOOH things were a changin, I was a changin. The web world was no longer passive, now I was interacting under such great names as Friggin Loon and the Grassy Mole and talking about things I was interested in, even if nobody else was.So what is the point of all of this? The point is if you have taken the time to read this far you can take a little more time and check out my new web 2.0 sites.
