‘If you read someone else’s diary, you get what you deserve’*
This is my diary. Not a diary full of stories about the guys I fall in love with, how I spend my school days with my friends or what kind of shoes I would like to buy. I used to have one of them when I was 13 years old. Of course there are bits and pieces of love, leisure time, school days and shoes between the lines. But there is also more.
As an Internet geek, I am mostly online. I am usually reading something, writing comments or Twitter updates, sharing what I think, rant or like with my friends. Once you get familiarised with the tricks of the online world, you could end up finding out very interesting things which make your friends ask you the same question all the time: How did you find this out on the Internet?
This blog is not an answer to that question. I am not planning to tell you my online research tricks. This blog is mostly a reflection of them. It is really a cliché to say that many of us are exposed to millions of messages, stories, images throughout the day. Yes, we know that. We may complain but we also enjoy. This blog is my reaction to this daily experience. It is not designed to be a one-way communication. It is really important to get feedback, generate discussions and create an interactive blog that we could debate on. It is also designed to create a collective memory on the Internet. As part of another cliché, we are living really fast. We write e-mails, press the send button and we forget. I know they are kept in the sent e-mails file but how many of you check that file anyway?
If you are interested in politics, social media, political communications and popular culture, please join me on this blog. It could be a learning experience for all of us. Thanks in advance for your company and welcome.
