WHAT"S YOUR STORY? Before you read, please know that I mean for the results of this thread to be entirely positive. This may be a topic that surfaces from time to time. It's a question I like to ask online. In this case, I admit I am curious about people's stories here for a rather specific reason. But, it's also true that since I first started chatting in Yahoo's old chat rooms (circa 1991- 'til around, oh... 2000-ish), and also began joining a few forums and message boards, I've been fascinated by the differences between how we communicate and get to know each other in the flesh and how we go about these same things online. Since the inception of the internet, these two forms of human interaction have been diverging. They are now distinct. The world of the interweb is defining it's own distinct reality. Whether you are old enough to remember when this was not so, or are a child of this new world and therefor see it as "how it's always been"... that it is so at all is.... interesting. We have become a binary-reality society. So. What's your story? By this, here's what I mean: In say, no more than eight to ten paragraphs, tell us - what kind of kid were you? How did you become involved in music? How did you get involved in online collaborations? Tell us a bit about your life now (wife? hubby? harem? kids? work? hobbies?) Say a little about who you are now (I suspect this may be the hardest part for some folks. In a paragraph or two, try to tell us what makes you distinct and unique as a person right now). And finally, what one (hopefully really interesting) thing do you want everyone here to know about you, that they don't know now? NO POLITICS! Say nothing about your politics or voting plans. Eight to ten paragraphs is a lot. If you need less, fine. But that should be enough room for anyone to tell their basic story. I WILL NOT START! But, if several people respond, I will post my tale. My interest in posting this centers fully on hearing YOUR stories, NOT telling mine, so mine, when (if) I tell it will be succinct and as brief as humanly possible. I sincerely look forward to reading your stories.
