Let's see, I just connected with the girl who chased me down on Sadie Hawkins day at sleepaway camp - in 1971.
I connected with one of my neighbors who is married to a guy from my class in college with whom I just connected.
And my 14-year old daughter has topped the 1000 mark for friends. I kid you not. I don't think she has even met 1000 people but they are all real life friends and friends of friends and friends of friends of friends.
My wife is addicted and I myself seem to check it a few times per day. Yet, I have not made a single business deal on any social media ever (I am on LinkedIn but tweeting and twittering is just beyond my need to know. "Oh, I just had grapefruit for breakfast. Come to my seminar!")
A new way to go back in time or the fall of Western civilization?
