Of course I use Facebook

Imagine if you were a popular musician in the 1960s, someone who started in the 40s or 50s. Looking forward to a decade or more of performing, then retiring. Then, British Invasion. So tell me, what do you do? Curl up in a ball and pretend it didn't happen? Or.. It's music! This is what you do. So what if I remember a time when there were no Beatles or Rolling Stones. It's music. And that's what I do. And I steal from the best. And here's some good music. So of course I want to understand it. And learn from it. And adapt. You think you can't learn from people who are younger than you? You're wrong. So of course I use Facebook. Because it's a fixture. It will heavily influence the new systems of the decades to come. And I'm making some of those. So I need to be influenced if I want to be part of the future. That's why I use it, and if you don't and you're serious about this stuff, you're wrong. (Sometimes ideas and people are wrong, as much as I don't like to judge. There are things people do that lead them away from what they want.)
