To knock back loneliness' fear,
It should, by now, be very clear
Whether you do it early or late
To connect, here, is to participate.

To have your craved digital touch
You need to be involved, and such.
Lurking and reading along can be fine
But engagement's two-way, by design.

Anyone have plans for ( ) this year? They just opened up registration for teams at softwarefreedomday.org/ It's a great opportunity to share the benefits of using , and

A lot of people keep promoting Pinterest and say it's great for looking up information such as recipes. Don't seem to have any luck looking for topics of interest on Pinterest. Keep wondering what it's good for. When our local library did an intro to Pinterest, I finally found a use for it. Decided it might be a good medium to advocate , and to those unfamiliar with it. Here's a link to my list of useful programs on Pinterest: pinterest.com/lmemsm/open-sour
