I have Facebook, My space and Twitter but I find all a waste of time. I haven't looked at My Space in months I only check Facebook when I get an email that addresses me personally and I think I signed up and entered something on twitter once but I'm not even going to check. I will keep Facebook as I have family there, some that I have never met in person.
Writing to my blog and reading others I find satisfying.
Social networking seems to be a safe substitute for real interaction with other people for those that may be otherwise socially challenged.

I'm with you Matt. For a long time I was without Facebook and had never been to twitter.com. It is actually my job that pushed me into those sites. I still feel that (like most tools we humans develop) Facebook and Twitter have wonderful potential to be useful tools for the powers of good (like our mapping friend above), but are too often coopted for evil, self-gratification, laziness, simple-mindedness.

One point a friend made the other day: Facebook has become as ubiquitous as cellular telephones. A scant ten years ago, I had one friend who had a cell phone. At this point in time, who doesn't? You're expected to have a cell phone (people don't make plans to meet you at 8pm, they'll "call you when they get there"). In much the same way, we're all slowly being expected to be on Facebook, as my employer expected me to be in order to do my job to its fullest extent. And much like magazines, television, rock music and cell phones were decried as horsemen, then accepted, so will Facebook remain omnipresent.

As far as Facebook is concerned, my bicycle club/team organizes everything there. So I use it for that.

The map seems to show pedestrian related collisions too. Plus every collision seems to get at least two ids. Lastly it seems cover a pretty long time. There are about a dozen collisions since the beginning of September. I did not figure out how far back the map shows collisions.

I think the City should be paying him to do this, but he’s doing it for free.Writing to my blog and reading others I find satisfying.
