I finally caved and set up a Facebook account. I resisted the Facebook movement for as long as I possibly could, but when your eighty-five year old uncle asks if you have you have a Face place you know that a platform’s time has most definitely come and resistance is futile. The thing is, though, that now I have a Twitter account, a Vox blog, a Blogger blog, a work email account, a spam/shopping email account, an AOL email account, a Bloglines reader, and Facebook account.

How???
