How to Internet: Introduction

When Lloyd asked me to fill in, I was a bit stumped. Because the con­tent I post to Link Banana is sim­il­ar to the stuff that Lloyd posts, and I already struggle to keep that full–I did­n’t really want to put that stuff here. I also did­n’t really want to ape his style, as I’d almost inev­it­ably have done that poorly.

Gen­er­ously, Lloyd spe­cified that I could pub­lish any­thing I thought would be of interest. And it was while I was con­sid­er­ing the odd nature of that fact that he and I know each oth­er at all–for those not keep­ing score Lloyd is a Brit who lives in the Neth­er­lands, I’m an Amer­ic­an who lives in Col­or­ado, we’ve nev­er met in person–that I thought about how dif­fer­ent the inter­net I know and love is from that known to almost all my “real life” friends, those of my sib­lings, par­ents, and pretty much any­one who I share phys­ic­al spaces with on a reg­u­lar basis.

So, if you’ll all allow me, my intent over this week is to explore that “Grand Canyon big” gap and how one could cross it if they so desired. I don’t know that any­thing I man­age to pub­lish here will be as inter­est­ing or valu­able to the Lone Gun­man’s read­ers as what Lloyd usu­ally does, but I hope it’ll come close.
