Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

I’m pretty sure when I show this video to my wife, she’s going to want me to commit Web 2.0 suicide as well.

While the video makes excellent points, I don’t buy into the all-or-nothingness of it all.  But maybe that’s the real point.  Showing how bad it CAN get by using extreme examples (like committing suicide) so you can recognize when your online life is getting a bit too much and infringing on the in-person-and-in-your-face life.

I for one don’t think I could ever give up my online friends, nor could I discount the myriad benefits I receive from facebook, twitter and linkedin. 

Moderation is the key. 

(I found out about W2SM – Web 2.0 Suicide Machine through NetworkWorld’s article about the legal fight they’re having with Facebook.)

tsk tsk
