it's a weird world

Sir David Attenborough just reminded me on Facebook to watch his new series. 619 people (and rising) like this, but only 74 have seen fit to comment. The social networking thing is in an odd state at the moment. It feels strangely transitional, as if we're waiting for some sort of crucial developent. I remember finding Livejournal ?5 years ago and thinking, "Great! That keeping in touch with people malarky! That's sorted now!" But now my friendsgroup is scattered across at least 10 systems, and still studded with SN refuseniks and lackadaisical updaters who next a text or email before they'll notice anything. All the cross-posting and aggregation in the world won't sort this; I wonder what will?

It's been a weekend of chaos, anxiety and wretched bad luck in the friendsgroup. I feel deepest sympathies to all involved, but have problems expressing them, as ever. I suffer the problem of feeling that social interaction from a semi-stranger is yet another burden; and one surely not needed in bad times. Never mind; maybe it needs updating, but I still want to give you all flowers.

On a lighter note: it's owltober! I just bought this:

happy owltober!
