If the internet is a huge time sink – and it is – then message boards and social networking sites are equivalent to black holes. I don’t have a LiveJournal page and Friendster can just fuck off. A couple years ago I had a MySpace account for a couple months and the experience was incredibly stupid. To this day I’ve never seen a major web site as poorly coded as MySpace was back then (I’m assuming someone at Fox eventually hired a group of programmers to beat Tom to death with chains).
So, for reasons I’m not going to bother going into, I just created a Facebook account. I’m expecting this to be a short-lived experiment resulting in a deactivated account a few months from now. In the meantime, if you’re on Facebook, look me up (tim at timothyx dot com). And if you’re not, feel free to mock me, I won’t hold it against you.
