"wason the tube..."
Nice read, I'd say I've never met about half of my friends...
aww what a sweet article
happy holiday to y'all folks too!
so, who's the village idiot?
So true. Great article Brett!
Me! Me! Pick Me!
I'm going to take Brett's advice and knock on a virtual door and introduce myself
I'm Dave, I've been reading bit-tech for for a year or two now but havent posted much in the forums. Hope to get posting more in the future!
Hope you all have a happy holiday & new year
the question everyone's asking....
So who's the Mr. Rogers of our neighborhood???
Just think about that.....
After reading this article, being as I live in Southern California, you are pretty separated from everyone else. Everyone mills about doing their own private thing. Even people who come from other parts of the country are suprised at how segregated everyone is, and I don't mean in a race way, but just in a private way. Althrough I do find comfort in the church I volunteer tech services at regularly, and have for 10+ years now. That is also a family to me, with people I meet and know. So I get my social interaction, besides here and on the net, there, and that;s where most of my friends reside, with a few from college and work. Just my $0.02.
merry xmas "ya'll"
Merry Christmas, neighbours.
Quit playing on my lawn you stupid kids!
Since watching a specific episode of robot chicken or family guy i forget which has given me a whole new outlook on mr rogers
I would just like to say i have enjoyed my time here at bit-tech and hopefully that will continue until my heart stops going thump thump, thump thump.
Great article - a nice way to finish off the year and to make us ponder over what social networking will bring us next year!
Merry Christmas all! 4 days and counting...
Very good article!
And it has something true for me. Since i started reading/posting here I moved 4 times to a new neighbourhood and I never really have the time to talk to my neighbours. But here are still the same people around and I feel kinda at home here (to some degree )
Thanks guys and a Marry Xmas everyone!
P.S We need a Xmas smiley!
I would worry about the "Mr. Rogers" of the neighborhood. He was a little TOO nice, almost like he was hiding something...
Like all the tatoos on the real Mr. Rogers.
The internet is great for keeping in contact with friends, when everyone goes away for school you can still talk even though we only see each other every once in a while.
Merry Christmas and what not.
All I can say is absolutly. I'm much more connected to my Bit-Tech neighbors than I am to my actual ones. Before Bit it was a chat room on Yahoo. I've just always found virtual communities more interesting than the real ones.
I think we're starting to see some bleed-over though. I knew several couples in the chat room that met there, I met my oldest friend there, who I finally met in person two years ago (she lives in Australia), and one of my G/Fs coworkers met her significant other playing WoW. He moved to Washington from Alabama and they now live together.
Another great thing about this sort of neighborhood is that you can take it with you. When I was in Mississippi with FEMA for three months last year, many on bit never knew I wasn't at home. I was still able to be a part of the conversations even though I was sitting in a motel room in Meridian MS.
Personally, I find this a community much more to my liking. Happy Monday, neighbors.
Good article, i don't find it to be much like the article though, australians love barbeques, beer and cricket so being 20 it is one big happy family for now.
3-0 soon to be 5-0.
Do the yanks have cricket?
