Soo…9 days without Facebook. What have I been doing with myself? Mowing the lawn, taking long walks outside, working on projects for work and school; I’ve also been revisiting the various social networks and micro-networks I’ve joined over the last several years…and I’ve joined a coupla more. Presented here, for my benefit and yours, are the places I’m connected to online – and why I’m on a particular network. This doesn’t count email discussion groups I’m part of; I suppose that’d be a whole ‘nother post!
Twitter – @zoecarnate
FriendFeed – FriendFeed is awesome; let’s hope Facebook buying them doesn’t screw it up.
LinkedIn – my business, my biz-nass.
LibraryThing – my library, cataloged. A super-fun social network for book geeks.
Myspace – because sometimes I’m nostalgic for 2003.
Plaxo – does anyone remember what Plaxo is for?
YouTube – my vids, vids, vids.
ShapingTomorrow – a large global community; primarily devoted to environmental scanning and trend analysis
The New Futurists – a younger crop of futurists, centered primarily in the northeast United States.
TransFORM – there’s more than meets the eye here.
Christiarchy! – Christian anarchists and Anabaptists (is there a difference?)
Christian Mysticism & Contemplative Spirituality – what it says. Contemplate that.
Missional Tribe – this one had a strong start but I think WordPress infrastructure, while great for blogs, isn’t great for supporting social networks.
Recovering Evangelical – hee-hee.
Metro Atlanta Emergent Cohort – my once and future cohort.
The Common Root – formerly Submergent; an awesome group of Anabaptist-minded peeps.
QuakerQuaker – aka Convergent Friends.
House Church Homies
Love Is Concrete – you can actually draw stuff in this network.
Wisefire – a great group of people.
iEvolve: Global Practice Community – Integral peeps.
