So, I was reading the comments to my last post, one of them from a woman at Hallmark. I figured she was a longer-term peterme.com reader.
Well, it turns out I’m in Hallmark’s offices, and when I open up iChat, I see this woman on the local network. So I say, “Hi! I saw you had written on my site!”
In chatting, I found out that she hadn’t been to my site before today. What had happened is that my computer had popped up on the local network, and had appeared in people’s iChat and iTunes. She Googled my name, and saw my site, read that I was in Kansas City, and posted a comment. I then read that, and later discovered her on the network.
I don’t know quite what to make of all this, except that it seems like a glimpse of what’s to be as things get increasingly digital and public.
