By coincidence, Rory Cellan Jones, the BBC's technology correspondent, asked me last week if I was "resistant" to blogging, which I'm not; I'm just dense. He says I need to get with it or I'll become a dinosaur.
I really should blog, I know I should.
A former colleague has remonstrated with me on several occasion for my lack of blogging. He reckons I'm missing a trick, that I might be headhunted for Britain's Got Talent. A colleague in the newsroom blogs all the time. The Editor's a big fan, too. He blogs. And he twitters. He explained it to me the other day twittering. It's like blogging, only it's a bit different. I smiled and pretended to understand.
Put me at a drinks reception and my knees lock, my eyes glaze over, and I jabber.
I thought was a bad thing.

You'll be able to see Tory leader Mike Whitby having a cup of tea and a sponge finger, interspersed with live coverage of Labour's Sir Albert Bore scratching his nose.
The global pull of the internet is of course where the city council's techno venture really scores over TV. People will be able to watch the action at the count from anywhere in the world. Should they have got bored with watching the grass grow in Papua New Guinea, local tribes will be able to log on for updates of the latest developments in South Yardley.

Not only is it the future (although if I know about it, it is probably already the past); it also has the advantage of being tailor made for someone of my reclusive social tendancies.
Cellan Jones will be chairing a debate in Birmingham, as part of June's New Generation Arts festival, about the digital revolution. In essence, the debate will seek to establish if blogging and the like (internet shopping, Facebook, YouTube, TV programming, online Michael Kors Handbags With Gold Chains gambling, porn) has made us more or less powerful.
Hard as it is to believe, I have never, ever, featured in The Birmingham Post's society pages, and that represents a pretty major networking deficit. The business editor, who is far less photogenic, practically lives on those pages.
Fifteen years! The last person who asked us round, for a Thai curry if I remember correctly, was called Winkles. It will be on my headstone: Winkles was his last supper.
Expect drama such as this: Goldberg: "We are getting unconfirmed reports that the van carrying the election boxes from Washwood Heath has got stuck behind a bus at a set of red lights. It's just by Mustafa's kebab shop. As I say, that's unconfirmed."
I'm not joking. The council is deadly serious, so serious it has lined up Adrian Goldberg (Benny, from Crossroads, was unavailable, and Suzanne Virdee was too expensive) to present the "web streaming."

Technology, clearly, is a good thing. I can see that. Without it, there would not be iTunes, and without iTunes I would not have been able to purchase ("download") Indeep's epic Last Night A DJ Saved My Life together with Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street for less than the price of a packet of beetroot and parsnip crisps.
