Tagged again - Media Consumption
Tara tagged me for a new one on media consumption. This meme was started by Jeremiah Owyang, calling it "media consumption diet."
I use the web so much, I think I could have an enormous list. I'll just include the obvious to save you from total boredom.
Local classical and NPR stations and random stuff on the web. I don't listen to a lot of radio.
Don't ask. Too much. I feel guilty.
Netflix about 2 per week, movies at theaters during holiday periods.
I now have VOIP telephone (via Speakeasy), do a ton of Skype as my collaborators and clients are all around the world. Far more voice than I can ever remember and at a point I find it more tiring than text. I have a mobile phone I only use on the road and so my kids can reach me. I have a second sense for communicating with my mom. I know when she is about to call.
One word, addicted. Second word, stacks. Third thought -- never get through them all. But bookstores and Amazon love me. 'Nuff said. I started putting books into Library Thing but did not get very far. I'm clearly distracted by all this "social" media. Harrumph!
Not many. I have a National Geographic subscription from when I graduated high school (started by my great uncle Andrew). I pick up food mags at the grocery store and pick up anything left behind on airplanes to pass the time while traveling.
Local paper, The Seattle Times. Gotta get that local news.
World, classical, folk, and whatever passes by me. I don't spend as much time listening as I used to. I've grown fond of quiet.
Now, if my friends don't shoot me, I'll tag Beth, Jim (who I know has a very interesting media diet), Tina (new friend), Jon and... YOU! (comment and I'll tag you. Lets get random!)
