It anything, I’ve been feeling rather exposed by having so many online venues, clamoring for my attention. For example, I’m on Twitter under various aliases: @janaremy, @MHpodcast, @theexponent, @ATChapman, @PDP2010, @dhsocal. Granted, several of these logins I share with other group members….but it’s still a lot to manage! Blogwise, I can be found in numerous spaces, too: PilgrimSteps, MakingHistoryPodcast: Blog, HistoryCompass, DHSoCal, The Exponent, etc. Then there’s flickr and Facebook and LinkedIn and Posterous. Not to mention GoogleBuzz and GChat and Skype.
These online presences all complement my “in-real-life” busy-ness. I’m shuffling between two campuses, fulfilling parenting/household duties, and escaping to the ocean as often as is reasonable.
Of course, it would be uber-awesome to be mayor of the Pacific–or at least of Newport Harbor. But I’m not yet convinced that I need a web app to tell me I own those spaces.
