It’s been painfully clear to me for a number of years now that the technological world is leaving me behind — and at an increasingly rapid rate.
Instead of excitedly making a new connection on LinkedIn or Facebook or whatever the latest site of the day is, I curse when I get those “I’d be honored if you would join my network” notes from friends and colleagues. It never seems to be as easy as a simple click to accept a new “friend.” And I can never remember my password (of which I now have approximately 5,000) or, for that matter, even my user name.
So imagine my shock (and, honestly, dismay) when I got an invitation today to join WuShock’s network on LinkedIn. WuShock? The WSU mascot? Are you kidding me?
A quick call to the university didn’t reveal much information. Wu apparently is at lunch. But his spokesman is supposed to call back soon, so check out Have You Heard? in tomorrow’s paper for news on just how connected Wu is.
