I’ve never looked at facebook.com…, though I know what it is, but periodically I get people emailing me with encouragement to join facebook and then and make various other people my friends.
While I’m into most internet things, this one hasn’t yet grabbed my attention. I feel like I already suffer from being exposed to more items than I want to handle. I want less info, not more.
There was a book in the 80s that I liked called Easy Travel to Other Planets, by Ted Mooney, with intelligent dolphins and melting Poles and I can’t remember what else. I don’t think he wrote anything as good again. I liked the title and used it as a chapter title in my book. Anyhow, in the near-future world in which that book was set, many people suffered from “information sickness” whose initial symptoms were spontaneous bleeding from inside the ears.
