Things to Ponder

Sitting in traffic yesterday afternoon singing along to the song on the radio, I look across at the woman in the car next to me. She's singing along to the same song too :) These are the sort of little things that make me smile.

I dunno, I guess that's a pretty weird thing.
Although, I'll console myself with the fact that it's not so weird as some of the stuff in my head :)

The other day I decided that google-ing myself was far to last year and decided to wikipedia myself. I was sorely disappointed. And then wondered to myself if it would be wrong to write an entry for myself ... hmmm. Apparently, as JofH proceeded to inform me, this would be far too narcissistic, even for me ;)

I wonder if wikipedia-ing someone will eventually replace google-ing someone? Will ordinary citizens start writing entries on wikipedia about themselves? I was fascinated by the concept that I could actually do this, and quite easily.

Hey PhillyGirl - thanks for stopping by on my blog, I always appreciate a new face [profile at least] coming to visit. On googling people, funny that I have never done that. Strange, now I can see my self googling and wikipedia'ing everyone I know. Thanks for smashing my Monday morning productivity.

I'm a huge fan of googling. I'm sure I've done it more than once for most people I know ... hey, I'm nosy, but I knew that already!
It's unfortunate (or fortunate, depends on your point of view) that most South African's don't have too much of a personal web presence - nothing on par with the crazy American's.
Hell, I'd be thrilled if more restaurants in South Africa even had a web presence !!
