I said that I wanted to start demolishing the firewalls between my online persona and offline personas. So I drew the above diagram to clarify in my mind how it all fits together. Complex or what???*
In the middle you'll see Firewall 1. On the left of this firewall is what you guys know of me. On the right is my recently established REAL NAME (with REAL MEATY FRIENDS) Facebook account. And the place where I want to make the first attack on Firewall 1, is where the big dark arrow breaks thru the wall.**
You may notice that there's also a Firewall 2 to the right. This is the one that seperates my biz life from my private life (online and offline private). This second firewall will be the last I ever breakdown (if ever). Because the industry that I work in is so full of arsehole conservative suited morons that any whiff of bipolarhood would likely send them scuttling to their mommies.
Not sure if you really needed to know all of that, but there it is anyway :)
Thanks for the comments and concern on last post. You guys are right, the alcohol decision needs more consideration first. 2. Yes, I know I've been like a pinball on steroids lately - I think the spring sunshine is finally kicking in. But rest assured the over-enthusiasm will soon fizzle. It's Monday tomorrow remember.
*This excludes all my other web accounts like YouTube, Lulu, Bookcrossing, Feedburner, Technorati, Google sites etc. etc.
** I'm happy to report that since writing this post one of my readers and fellow BiPolars has broken thru firewall 1 and is now an official friend on Facebook.
