A friend of mine finally convinced me to create an account on Facebook. Facebook is one of those "social networking" sites, and I have to be honest, I haven't quite figured it out yet.

However, one of the cool things about it is finding friends who you totally lost contact with. It reminds me of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- this friend knows that friend who knows another that WOAH, you actually know.

So just today, I've found my roommate from DLI (1988), who was also my roommate for a while in Korea (1989). What a blast from the past! I had to go dig up my photo album from that time and found her wedding pictures, which reminded me of running to the flower market in the early morning to get flowers for her bouquet. And suddenly there are all these amazing memories flooding back -- I love nostalgia, and can (and do) get completely lost in it.

This is exactly what I love about the Internet -- the ability not only to reach out and meet all sorts of new and interesting people, but to be able to locate and find long lost friends -- that's amazing!

So if you have a Facebook profile and want to connect, just click here -- I'll meet you there!

    I came to Facebook reluctantly -- I did it only because I work with college students and this is a good way to stay in touch with them. Now, I've connected with friends, including people we went to high school with, and it's been interesting.

  2. Me, too! I have so many networking groups and forums I belong to that I can hardly keep up, but I've met up with some people I'd lost contact with and that is just too cool.

  3. oh, i reconnected with a lot of high school people and family too that live around the word, so it's very convenient in the way. I don't go on much but if I do, I'll look you up! :D

  4. Are you kidding? Do you know how many Lori Andersons are listed?


  5. HA! I changed it to include my maiden name, Lori McDaniel Anderson -- I'll put the link in there, too!

  6. no, facebook, just wanted to say what a small world it is.
