There are times when I wonder where I fit in this world.
I saw a video thingy on the Interweb this morning where Stephen Fry and a couple of geeks and nerds were all talking about the future of the Interweb. Now I have a huge respect for Mr Fry as an orator and an actor, but he leaves me a bit bewildered when he starts on this “Social Media” thingy. However bewildered he leaves me, is nothing compared to the couple from Twitter and LinkedIn though. I hadn’t a fucking clue what they were on about. One was waffling about the transition from “web one oh to web two oh” and the other just twittered on about Twitter.
There are some things in life that I find exciting, like watching a Guinness delivery to a pub, or seeing a 4WD crash or even watching Sharon read the News, but Twitter leaves me completely cold. I even hate its name. Fucking “Twitter”! How anyone can get excited about a medium devoted to mini-brainfarts is beyond me. I switched off.
I decided I was getting too old for this malarkey so I wandered over to a site for us Silver Haired Surfers – Golden Ireland. Having browsed their hotel deals and made a few notes, I wandered into their Computing area. Fuck me but they want to teach me how to use email!
So here I am, stuck in a sort of Limbo.
I’m too old for all this shite about multi-faceted media interaction, and Clouds and other crap like that.
But apparently I’m not old enough to not know how to use a PC.
Am I a Silver Geek?
