Increasingly, I find myself having responsibility over websites. Both at AmCham Taipei and at UMC, I am the one to make sure the website is up-to-date. And now, I have my personal site.
My mother is very funny. She instant messaged me this yesterday:
"There is something wrong with your website. I have been trying to read the latest entry, but the most recent entry is from Monday."
"That's because I've been too busy at work to write anything since Monday."
Also, sometimes when I have sent her an instant message about what is going on at work, she'll respond:
"But the website still says..."
"Mom, that's because I haven't updated the website."
In this increasingly electronically connected world, I suppose we sometimes forget there are real people behind these virtual facades.
