I set up this blog site for programming.
I set up this site so that I could share with other programmers some of the problems I have had and how I overcame them.
I set up this site, so that I could share with other developers who had similar problems as I did.
I didn’t set up this site to share my personal ideas, my daily to-dos or anything else.
As time went on though, the very items I tried to keep off this site made it here.
Twitter, Facebook, Flickr. They’re here. I didn’t understand them at first, but I enjoy them and they’re here.
Now Obama is here… he and politics have made their way to my website.
I have to say, Obama’s use of the internet as been quite impressive. The White House portal, his use of Twitter on the campaign trail and now, Flickr!!!.
I won’t lie. I don’t agree with his ideas, his policies or his plans, but I do agree that the use of the internet to make American’s more connected with the government is a great idea.
It seems for quite some time now people don’t want to know what’s going on in the government unless it’s controversial.
I don’t agree with that, and Obama is doing the right thing by making the U.S. government more visible. More tangible. Less frightening.
The U.S. is filled with good people and we tend to forget that too.
Let’s not forget who we are and that we all neighbors.
