Hi Chris, another great post. I think I could easily self certify myself with this. Email (and Facebook) doesn't work for me any longer though. It's the ping of Twitter that I resonate with most. I've only been using Twitter since last summer, and it has become my staple item for keeping uptodate with the blogosphere globally, overtaken my RSS reading and keeps my connected too. Others I'll try and they work, then lose their appeal.
I've been following Louis Suarez posts on giving up organisational email too which have been quite inspiring and would love to implement this in my 'day job' organisation but it will be a slow process for adoption amongst all of us. Small bridges are being stepped over, but only little ones and very gently. Building the better social network flow is very true, and hope that you can keep on top of your VGS too!
This is not only hilarious and witty, but definitely something we all should consider, especially early adopters and those who are working on more than one social network.
I'll declare RSS bankruptcy if I've been offline long enough with no problem and I can fortunately go days offline because I never have any pressing work online! Thank God this is a hobby for me and not a full time job (yet?).
ahhh... it's so true isn't it. I know I'm addicted to VGS!
"How much of this represents your day?" All of it ... the hardest time is watching my Shyftr feed list at 1am on a Saturday ... the blogosphere goes off the radar for about 6 hours a week... lol... i suppose i should take that as a hint to go get some sleep. ;)
Chris, in the words of the great Austion Powers "You make it sound so dirty, darling - randy, yeah!" ...
Wonder if the pope is gong to add this to the new 7 social sins and make the 8th: "Thou shalst not overly socialize on god-less electonic networks"
i try very hard to deny my VGS and i've even set my adium preferences so i don't hear the sounds of IM's coming, or visual notices when people log on and off. needless to say, it takes a lot for me to close my buddy list...

Yes this is a blatant theft of the outline that Jess uses on her page, but I asked permission. Why?? Because I am a hardcore admin and can make ugly tables to make you developers frustrated, but this was too nice to pass up.
Yes, I write some of those dreaded admin cert exams you take. I won't say which ones so you don't come looking for me, but I will say they are the real good recent ones that have been coming out.
One dog, a Pug. He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me.
Let us now also add a deranged cat that is in the process of being toilet trained. Update: Toilet traning was very very close.
Non-stop. At my desk, in my car, walking to work and back to my car downtown. In the house there is a crazy zoned set-up for you home automation geeks.
I am a self-proclaimed MP3 fiend, to which I have tried rehab 4 billion times to no avail. Next is the MP3 hard-drive for the car that I found. Now what kind of music you ask? I will never tell.
Get back to you here
Hershey’s Stomach of Holding: Jess and I are fighting over who eats more chocolate. TWDUFF can help me out and vouch for me.
This will take far more time than I have today. I will start with I was born and still live in St. Louis, MO. Even though for a couple years I was never, ever here and always on the road, this is smack in the middle of the US. Everything is just a few hour flight. That part is nice. No beach/ocean/coast isn't the best. But with the travel I make up for it.
Looking to find me in person? Here is where I will be.
