I think being an aloof, nice guy online is my special ability. I treat everybody with respect, which isn’t identical but in the way that I think is appropriate. (the way I respect Naveed Akhtar is by arguing for example) A ready example of this I can think of is: Since 5th grade and through 6th, 7th and now 8th grade, my nephew’s friend occasionally asks my nephew: “Wow, your Uncle is famous! Why is he famous?” He wants to know and doesn’t know. My nephew doesn’t know. I don’t know. But I sort of do. I’m just aloof, nice, smart (I like sharing smart stuff) and have a mild sense of humor that’s usually rated G/PG, Y-11 at worst. I’m safe. So, I’m not shocked anymore when I get friend requests or subscribers like this one 40 mins ago. Do I know who this is? No. Do I know how they found my channel? No. I don’t have any theme that I know of. No specialty. No real style. Maybe I do and don’t see it.

(and I’m not famous. But I get friend requests when I go places online so I can see why it looks that way).

I’m still proud of Vine – had 15000 subs there and loved making them – but its time had passed :’-( Weird thing is, I don’t have any real agenda except to “be myself online” as much as I can and encourage others through example. So I guess I do have an agenda. Ok, now I’m done. :P
