It’s a funny name, Truth & Robots. But that’s what the Interweb is. Somehow, these robots magically disseminate the truth. And when a bunch of people all share a belief, well…then we see that wave of truth come rolling through.
One thing I can never seem to get ahead of are these trendy things that happen online. When I send someone something that I think is cool, the response I get is, “Oh yeah, I saw that like six months ago.” So, for those of you are are just like me and don’t spend every waking, freaking second of your life surfing and tweeting, here are a few basics you should be aware of:
www.stumbleupon.com – the easiest way to find something that one of your co-workers has probably already seen. Don’t install the toolbar because you’ll give yourself away. By now you should have already installed and removed it.

Well, that’s it for today’s lesson on the Interweb. Hope this helps you feel a little more caught up. And for those of you reading this who think I am an Interweb hating, luddite laggard… You’d be right about the laggard part. That said, I have been Rickroll’d and I would never crosspost.
