A Greybeard's Apology

There was an article published on c|net today about how "icky" it is for old, married guys to friend young women on Facebook. While I'm not married, I'm probably old, and perhaps "icky", with respect to some of the people whose journals I comment in but have not friended me (nor vice versa). So here's an explanation, sort of.

Some of it is nostalgia – I like reading about people's experiences of places I went to school. Some of it is hopefully dispensing useful advice. Then there is the aspect of trying to learn/understand how to be a better problem solver/computer professional from those people who seem to "get it" more easily/straightforwardly than I did when I was a student. So pardon the occasional intrusion – I'm not a stalker; just someone who wants to share and learn.
