I see electronic people!
Yes, it's true, I see electronic people. They are everywhere! or they should be. I can really only see electronic people in certain places, here.
Gone are the days when the trendiest thing you could do was put a hit counter on your site, and then hack it so all your mates thought you had a million hits in about 3 hours, no. I have attached google analytics to the site... why you might ask, partly because I'm curious to see what it does, and to see how many people do come to the site... how many people are actually listen to me ramble on!
I mean obviously if its hundreds of people trolling out there in cyberspace, thats awesome, I'll follow the prompts from google-analytics, and make sure my pages reflect my ad-blocks and try to make people actively stay on the site so they can participate in e-commerce which it can also pick up...
Or, in contrast there is no one here. I can use this online space as my own private journal, safe in the knowledge that no one will read it. The will be no chance of @$@$#@#$@$#Pty Ltd finding out I post here, vent a spleen about who and whatever and fire me.
Such things aren't actually a worry to be but i thought i might do the bloggy thing of mentioning something i read in another blog, me being lazy and forgetful, i cant remember which blog, and i'm not going to search for it and link to it... it was at penny-arcade the other day when they mentioned it, my brain slowly kicked into gear.
But yes, now the curse is upon me! I see electronic people, and in this electronic world, where I hold my electronic party, I see how many guests arrive, broken down in quaint marketing terms, hour by hour, day by day.
I know how popular I am in ways facebook can never understand.
Such is my curse.
Such is my shame.
