So I finally made it to http://www.facebook.com. It took a while to log in. Had to wait for at least an hour to get the confirmation e-mail, but then I found a few friends as I inadvertently clicked a link that sent requests to people in my Gmail inbox, or so I think. Don’t really know where it came from as I had not requested a check between my address book and facebook membersI At times, social software is kind of totalizing suffocating in a big brother way. Eye see you. Stresses me out. Where is that breathing space of web 1.0?
But we’ll see if I’ll have time to follow it up and to do some real-time networking as it has recently been brought to my attention that this page occasionally crashes. I need to do some debugging. Seems to me though that it’s the rather heavy pageload that might cause the page to crash. Too much social and commercial software pulled in that makes the page crumble maybe?

Signed up for LinkedIn. Created an account, logged in, checked out the place. Looks promising for (re)connecting with (old) collegues and for business and networked experience both on- and offline. Have not made a network though, not yet.

Twitter has come over us. Should I include it here in my social web burn out blog? It is of course a great record of the doings of people around the world, insofar as they have access to the internet and/or are in possession of a mobile phone, and as such it is an archival goldmine for future research and documentation of what people actually were doing at a given point in time. But, I can’t help asking myself: Is Twitter a waste of time or a revolutionary networking tool
