I consider myself to be fairly adept at the social aspects of the Internet — or what we will call social media. I built my first website in the now defunct Geocities to share my interests with friends (and potential random strangers). I used IRC to <enter chat rooms>  and talk to people.[1] I shared more of my personal world on Livejournal, MySpace, FacebookTwitter, and was in the Google+ beta. I partially began my digital artistic skills by customizing 2D avatars for the Palace, and later entered the 3D world of Second Life to see what that was all about (spoiler: generally not worth your time). I check in with Foursquare, and Gowalla (I stopped using Loopt). I watch videos through YouTube and Vimeo; listen to music on Pandora and Spotify (I’m on the beta waiting list for Google Music). Suffice it to say, I live in a digital world and have been here for quite some time.
