Find an Old Friend!

Technology gets a bad rap...we are always being told that we are TOO connected or not connected enough.  I feel like I have a pretty healthy attitude toward technology and how it can enhance my business and my life, and I feel like my experience today is a good example.

Today I had two good (not particularly business related) experiences with technology that I wanted to share.  This morning, when I turned on my computer, I had a message from a college friend who had found me on www.Facebook.com.  This is someone that I had not seen, probably since graduation. I was happy to hear from him. He was the kind of friend that I probably never would have heard from again without the Internet. You know, the kind of friend that you enjoy seeing, but that you were never close enough to stay in touch with otherwise. I am happy that he found me, and suspect we will stay, at least sporadically, in touch. In any event, it was a happy way to start the day!

The second great experience was one that I initiated. I ran in to an old friend yesterday and it got me thinking about some of the other folks that we worked with. One woman in particular, I wondered about since she had left the company to go study in London.  I typed her name in to the search
function in www.linkedin.com and within 30 minutes we were corresponding by email. Both of us have taken very different paths from our early working days and it was fun to catch up!

So yes, the bad news is that we are always in touch...but that can be a good thing, too.  Take a couple of minutes and try to find an old friend...you might be surprised how easy it is!

Hi Holly,
Funny you should write about this.  Just a few weeks ago, an old highschool friend found me through AR!
