Me: “Hello, my name is John”
All: “Hello John”
Me: “It’s been 1 hour since my last usage of the Words With Friends app!”
All: “Good job John!”

I read this post yesterday and it made me think how many times I stop work and play Words With Friends (it’s always beeping at me…begging me, taunting me, to post a new word).

So, I decided to put my iPhone in Airplane Mode even though I was at my desk and nowhere near an airport.

I forgot how much work can actually get done in one hour!

New rule for me : 1pm to 2pm is “Airplane Mode Time”. During this hour, please leave me alone, I’m actually getting shit done.

Thanks for this post Gini!

Great post Gini. America, wake the 'f up! In my opinion, it is our Obligation to peaceably petition our government. Any means necessary. I call my crazy, right-winged congressman on a weekly basis (I'm now on a first name basis with his admin. :-) I now have another Democratic tool to sound my ideas to the belt-way . This site might not be the perfect means to shape/affect policy, but I see this as another method that We The People can voice our opinions. ...at least it's more constructive than a call-in AM radio show.

Agreed. Sad that 60mins gives Mark Z more air-time than Bernanke. Hello? Does anybody remember the financial crisis???

1) Gini, I agree that Facebook's rollout-plan was a mess-up. No company is above that.

2) Turning to 60 Minutes for a "rollout announcement"? Brilliant. Facebook's user-base is only large because of email-invites and word-of-mouth. I'm willing to bet thousands of older Americans checked out Facebook for the first time on Monday....they invite their friends....wa'la : email-invites and word-of-mouth. My thinking here was proven today; on a call with my dad, he asks : "Hey, have you heard of this thing called Facebook?"

What social-network do I turn to when the one I’m using isn’t “cool” anymore?
