Split personality

I realised something while I was at South by SouthWest: I’m an online introvert.

I don’t have comments on my site. I rarely comment on other people’s sites. I’m terrible at responding to emails and I’m nearly always the first one to terminate IM conversations.

But in the real world, I’ll talk your ear off. Drop me into a room full of fellow geeks and I’m likely to talk incessantly.

Either I need to learn how to shut up in person or become more outgoing in the digital realm. After redoubling my enthusiasm for the web in Austin, I may attempt the latter.
