I have the opportunity to view the things on the Internet while I work. Sometimes this is a hideous time sink and something I need to prevent myself from engaging in. A good portion of the time it’s a good way to spend some down time while I’m waiting for a test run to complete. If I find something particularly amusing, I’ll forward it on to one or more of my circles of friends so they can enjoy the same funny. Given the slowness with which I produce original content, this is the next best thing to entice people to give more weight to what I post to e-mail lists, Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, etc. I admit that this is a somewhat self-serving, but will accept the fact that I care that people listen to what I say. . . if I didn’t care, I wouldn’t post. If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t put it somewhere where I know people are going to see it. . . which, for the most part, is why I don’t really care whether or not people read what I post here. I don’t go out of my way to publicize my posts here and, if anyone besides me regularly reads what I post here, I’d be very surprised.
