I just created a new Facebook page, and I need 30 or so “LIKES” in order for all the back end components to kick in, so if you wouldn’t mind shooting over there and pressing the LIKE button, I would appreciate it.
As I was loading the new Facebook page up, I was thinking… I finish out all my artwork on a Wacom Cintiq with Photoshop and send digital files to clients across the nation via the internet. Over the years I have blogged on Xanga, My Space, Blogger, WordPress, and the cutting edge (at the time) BrotherJones. I’ve listened to music on LastFm, PureVolume, Pandora, Slacker, Rdio, and Spotify. I use YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, Facebook, DeviantArt, Tumblr, ImageKind, Society6, Dropbox, PayPal, YouSendIt and many other web services. I shop on Amazon and my purchases are delivered to my doorstep the very next day.
About 15 years ago I boldly told my oldest son as he was leaving for college, that the computer would NEVER replace my paint and paintbrush and that I really couldn’t see any reason why I would EVER need a computer or the internet for ANYTHING. Since that time I seem to have softened my bold stance on the subject just a bit.
