So we all probably have a very similar browsing pattern, I would think. Everyone has those sites they go to everyday or once a week. You probably don’t even think about it sometimes. You just click on the bookmark or you have an icon on your desktop and that’s where you start. I do that.
Sometimes it gets very regimented, too. Generally, it’s based around my workday. Mondays would be these sites. Tuesday this site and this podcast. Thursdays were blah and so on. With a few sites that I went to everyday, even numerous times a day.
So, I was thinking. What are those sites that are worth talking about? These sites make up MY INTERNET. I’m not talking about those places that everyone knows you go to. Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Google and Twitter, don’t count. Of course I go there. That’s what social networking is all about. (side note - you can find all of my social networking links at the bottom of every page) I’m talking about the places that you go to that are things you found along your Internet lifespan that maybe people know about, maybe not. They connect to you in some way (the voice, the content, an activity), and you have become just as loyal to them as your favourite tv show or restaurant.
So, I watched the Oscars last night as I have been doing for the past 20 or so years and it really made me wonder about it’s validity as a show in general. Are they still worth watching or is it just a big commercial for a certain selection of movies and a way of getting actors more money in their movie deals?
