Anonymous asked: just because you seem to be the kind of guy who likes things over people and I know a lot of autistic people are like that
Supposing this was intended as a question rather than a statement/answer to my own previous question:
I can see how my blog would give the impression that I like things better than people, given that I mostly post pictures of things.
My blog does not present a complete picture of my life, however. I never blog about my research here, nor much about my travels, nor about any of my weekly rehearsals, nor about my social life. As far as I’m concerned, this site is a just a place for pictures of stuff, whether it’s other people’s pictures, or pictures of things I’m working on.
So, yes, I don’t find pictures of random people I don’t know and will never meet to be terribly interesting. But interaction - that’s interesting. I find the people with whom I interact on a regular basis, whether in person or online, to be far more interesting than photos on a microblogging site. But I also don’t feel the need to take tons of pictures of my friends and I walking across campus to grab a coffee or having a beer after a day in the lab, nor do I feel the need to share those minutiae with the internet.
I suppose the fraction of my life that I present in this blog would make for a fairly incomplete existence. Good thing it’s just a fraction!
