Honestly, part of it is just because I am stubborn. I continually refuse to do mySpace because everyone else does. And this is not the first instance of this. On the computer, AIM is a great example. I didn't get onto AIM until about 4 years after everyone else did. Now I am signed on more than I care to admit. Cell phones are another great example. Everyone else had a cell phone long before I ever considered walking into a Sprint or T-Mobil office. In fact, I didn't even go get one until my mom made me. How do you feel about that? Now I use it far more than I want to most days. And so on and so forth. That's just my m.o, avoid things while they are wildly popular, and then jump on once the fad dies down a little. And that time hasn't come yet for mySpace.
Besides, what do I need mySpace for? I have this sweet blog, and I would guess that that is probably more of me than you guys want already. So now you want me to add mySpace? Anything that I would put on there is probably on here, except the photos. And let's be honest, I don't particularly like photos of myself anyhow. So why would I want you to see them? Someone explain that to me. "But Big Dave, you can set it to be private and then only your friends can see it." Well I could do that with this blog too but I don't. Because I don't see the use. Why bother with having something that not all the world can see? My friends don't need to see that stuff. My friends all know the stuff that I would put on my mySpace already. That and more. So why does that information have to live in cyberspace? Company, do you understand what I am getting at? Am I talking to a wall here?
Of course I am not talking to a wall. I am sure that you understand my skepticism and reluctance. Or maybe not. Either way it's okay. Because in the end I will cave I am sure. I always do. Someday Egypt and Legal Anne and goodness knows who else will receive invitations from me. It will happen very quietly I am sure. Time and society will always win out. So keep the heat up A.O. and eventually I will get mySpace. But until then, keep it as yourSpace.
