Scenes from a life online

Creative Capital invites me, as an alumnus of their Professional Development Program, to their Ning network. Due to some previous difficulty getting my account shut down on MySpace, which went from an interesting idea to a psychotic festival of lame design and unlettered prattling in a surprisingly short span, I reluctantly join. Then I accept a fellow artist's invitation to join LinkedIn. I love technology, but the lure of social networking eludes me.
I learn from the aforementioned blog that a Miami artist of some note has been featured on the blog of Kanye West. West's music interests me not at all, but I investigate anyway. Someone comments upon the artist's work: "Ahh hell naw, thats paper. Shit thats crazy man. That guy is super talented. Thnx Kanye, good looking out man." (The artist is actually female.) Last week we rented Idiocracy and something has reminded me of it twice a day since then.
After confusing myself horribly, I manage to install Adsense on Go See Art. Following several weeks of punching data into the site, I notice that I'm starting to convert automatically to military time.
Another day spent on the computer, I realize that I rather badly miss my friends in Miami.
