Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

"Is this the real world or is it just fantasy.."

As I learn a bit more about virtual communications and in particular blogging, the other thing I am experimenting with is Facebook. You can view my "profile" here or by clicking on the picture in the right hand column below.

Its a fascinating experience of building relationships with people you might otherwise never meet or those whom you have something in common with but don't really know. At least that's what I think it's about. I know it's a good place to be both as a politician wanting to keep my profile up and noticed wherever possible and as some-one who likes communicating with others, especially those with different views.

Yet it feels also like a very vulnerable place and so I have been cautious about just how much of myself I risk exposing to others in case its used against me. And I am still not sure I really know how best to use it effectively both politically and personally. Why, for example, would some-one throw a virtual sheep at another person real or otherwise?

I would like to know your views, hints tips and opinions on where I think more and more of human interaction will happen, whether we like it or not.
