The other day I made a sarcastic comment about our communication with Youthville. I was pretty frustrated when I wrote that post, but as Todd and my mom quickly pointed out, I probably shouldn’t have written what I did. So I would like to apologize to Youthville for airing my grievances with it in an unhelpful way on my blog.

I would also like to say that there are a lot of good people who work at Youthville who do some very tough jobs very well. They do important work that most of us don’t want to do, and they should be shown more appreciation.

I still don’t have much to say but I’ve been reading books lately and … Read More »

Dear Mark Zuckerberg

Dear Mark Zuckerberg,

So, I guess I owe you an apology. I’ve said some somewhat unkind things about your Facebook in the past, and about its users maybe being insecure narcissists. But recently, your little invention helped me find some people that are very important to me. I hadn’t seen these people in 6 years, and I’d been looking for them all that time. Yes, we live in Wichita and it’s a relatively small city, but I still couldn’t find them. I finally found them on something called “Bebo,” and even joined it hoping I could use it to contact them. But it turns out no one’s used Bebo in about 3 years due to the ubiquity of Facebook. So then I checked Facebook once again in the hopes they’d finally joined, and they had. I can’t even tell you how … Read More »
