Enterprise Publishing Interview About Facebook

27 Feb

Dave the Facebook fanatic!Last week, I spoke to Stephanie Ludwig, a reporter from Enterprise Publishing (our local paper in Blair) about “older” people who use Facebook and why. The main point I wanted to make in my conversation with Stephanie was that Facebook made it easy to maintain relationships. (I hope it came accross in the article.) It doesn’t replace the personal, intentional relationship building that has to go on between people, but it enables people to maintain those relationships over distance and time. There are some people I know only through the internet (people I’ve collaborated with on certain projects, experts in the field I work in, etc.). I like to think that if the opportunity ever came up, we could meet in person, but in the mean time – I like the idea of having a wide, diverse network of people I can bounce questions and ideas off of.

Poop Sandwich Revisited

16 Feb

In my previous Poop Sandwich post I wrote about a guy in Montana who was so disgusted with Obama’s plan prior to the 2008 elections that he parked a truckload of poop in front of the Democratic campaign’s office. Well the election has come and gone and we have a new President, which brings me to today.

I was listening to the radio this morning and I heard the announcer read an email that our Democrat Senator Ben Nelson received regarding his stance on the Congressional spending bill they are calling a stimulus package. The email said, “You can scrape a few flys off a poop sandwich but you tell me how it is NOT still a poop sandwich”.

I don’t think it needs an explaination.

Well said.
