Rip Van Winkle

Thursday, July 2, 2009

I feel like Rip Van Winkle, after he woke up, looking around at a changed world.

I speak of the virtual world of the internet.

Two months ago I set out to have my own website and felt rather smug that so much was familiar, even after six years absence. However, the longer Im on here the more I realize, I am an antique.

About the time I went to bed for my long unrestful sleep, things like RSS feeds began to come into usage. And blogs had not been around for long by the time Id pulled down the shades on the world. Id heard of them and read a few, but they were a relatively new thing.

Six years later, I am clueless. But Im following my bunny-slope of a learning curve, very slowly learning a little bit about this brave new virtual world.

I am learning. Look, see?

I am writing on my own Real Blog.
