Feeling Mighty Old
I am feeling mighty old today. I realize I am so much older than the majority of people who blog and/or participate at message boards. I don't know what, if anything, I have in common with people in cyberspace, or what people in cyberspace have in common with me. I just get the feeling that I could disappear and no one would notice.
The younger generation seem to have a much easier time developing close ties through social networking over the Internet. I have, to a very limited extent. What saddens me is how I seem to be the one to initiate e-mails. Rarely does anyone I've "met" on-line send me an e-mail unless I've sent one to them.
Where, if any place, do I fit in?
Obviously I'm in one of my cranky moods today.
Is this a generational issue, or is it just my odd perception?
