Facebook as real person networks

The on-line cyborg world used to be many virtual people. People I never met in real life would be supportive and friendly. Now I use facebook daily and it is a network of real life coworkers and past friends. This network still does not include some of my poorer friends but it is a real world network. I wrote an academic paper exploring this hypothesis that the web 2.0 is becoming more real world and less mythical cyberspace.

I am now using a Blackberry phone.

I decided to use a Blackberry phone. I use it to listen to music so far. I also use the facebook application. I am also using MobiPocket to read a Gutenberg free book. I am reading Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure. I donated 10 dollars to Project Gutenberg this month.
