Off to a Bad Start

So a month-and-a-half goes by without a post, what are you going to do…sue me? Truth is I've been seeing someone else, at least for the past day or so. Yesterday, I joined Facebook. 

There, I said it. 

I'd also like to say I'm very, very sorry.

It started innocently enough. I noticed that some friends of mine had a group on FB which posts some information which I could use to good advantage. Combined with a slow work day, one thing led to another, and before I know it, I'm friends with any number people that I don't normally communicate with. They are all fine, intellegent, (mostly) young people with much better social skills than I have. I don't think I'll be able to hang around to get used to throwing my every thought up on the wall, but I'll stick around for the group info and occasional nugget of real consequence.

One reason that I haven't posted here for a while is that I'd run out of any ideas of consequence. 

Or so I thought. 

Then I thought I'd suggest a more accurate branding of the concept to the people at Facebook.

Heh... timesuck? Sure can be.

As a photographer, take note of Facebook's terms of service when it comes to content licensing. That blog post (linked) talks about the fact that they claim a non-exclusive, non-restricted license for any use for any content you create or upload on their site.

Just run away!

Actually Laura set me up last year 'cause she thought it would help sell books. It did, but I freaked out early on when two people IM'd me at once. Since then I've figured out how to use it for work/home and the time-suck factor isn't so bad (not into posting photos, tho).
