I have been a visitor to the world wide web for many years. Although I have had myspace and more recently a facebook, I utilized these platforms mostly as a visitor. Perhaps you could say I was a visitor who had a timeshare which I would occasionally serve as my residence. Recently though, I have become more of a resident, I have essentially upgraded from that timeshare to a home that I live in often. So what was my apprehension? I wanted to remain a visitor because I was concerned with my privacy and my appearance. I couldn't "see the point of flaunting myself in front of strangers." I did not see what having an online presence would do for me, I already had a network of people who more or less cared about me and I about them. Dave White and others like Neil deGrasse Tyson have commented on the issue and have created a new perspective from which I can view Twitter and other online spaces.
