A few months ago my sister Martha got me to sign up for Facebook. She said it was a way for her to get back in touch with old friends from her high school years. So I joined. And I have to say that it's an amazing thing. I've found relatives, contemporary friends, online friends, old friends from church, high school, college, and elementary school all in one place. It decompartmentalizes your world, that's for sure. I really love it when I find a long-lost friend and reconnect with them, even if it's just to say "Hi, I've been thinking of you over the years. Hope you didn't forget me." Robert doesn't really understand Facebook at all. He's a networking Luddite.
