The Year In Status
While I am not a fan of the way that Facebook has cannibalized the internet, it has been good for some things. Friends can post pictures once so others can check at their leisure. It has also unleashed people's creativity, albeit in bite-sized doses. For all the Facebook apps that I want nothing to do with (Farmville, Mafia Wars, etc) there's something clever like the above: a random overview of my status updates for this past year. It's particularly handy, given the fact that I often can't remember what I've done last week, let alone for the last year, so reactions like "When did I see Fountains of Wayne?" are not surprising. What is surprising is how many of these posts deal with death, either directly or subtly. On the other hand, anyone who has perused this blog might notice that the only time I have anything to say is when I want to say "miss you."
