I have not always been technophobic. I’m a reasonably intelligent person and 25 years ago I enthusiastically integrated the instruments of technology into my daily life. Of course, 25 years ago, beepers were the only mobile communication devices in wide use. Thankfully, beepers are behind us, but honestly, I prefer to use my mobile phone for talking. Dial tone is essentially my only requirement. Programmable coffee pots, digital thermostats and iPods all baffle me.
However, my commitment to communication and admiration for innovation is stronger than my phobia, so I find myself engaged on the periphery of social networking. This is one step in that direction.
