Not Much…

So, I’ve been a bit of a social butterfly in the last ten years, gaining lists of friends from all walks of life that just love to chat.  I love the community and the socialness of it all.  When there’s something to converse about.

And you’ve all had this conversation…

Them: Hey man

Me: Sup

Them: Not much

And that’s it.

I mean, I think I know what’s happening here.  This is someone’s attempt to reach out.  But lets put this in a group setting.

Fellow walks up to me at, say, the Podcamp Pittsburgh meet n greet as I’m obviously engaged in gathering some delicious free snacks.

Them: Hey man

Me: Sup

Them: Not much

Awkward moment.  I go back to my snacks.

So this is a PSA to all of you Facebook and IM chatters out there.  Don’t be a Hey Man.  Have a followup.  Have a reason for being (online).  Give me a reason to put the free snacks down…
