I don’t know why I remembered this phrase this morning. I used it years ago in the infancy of the web when communicating with other “early adopters” of Web 1.0 in OT. I made nametag stickers with a purple spider web pattern for one of the AOTA conferences so we could find each other more easily, as we’d never met F2F. Then I stopped using the phrase as a colleague claimed she planned to write a column with a very similar name. I don’t know if that came to pass, but I was thinking again this morning of all the ways my life is “caught (up) in the web” now. I think that Twitter and Facebook most epitomize this. I so enjoy sharing what we find interesting/helpful/puzzling/bizarre with people I admire. It helps me to stay caught up. And it often captures me, spending more time than I’d planned and perhaps encouraging my “random abstractness” more than other current media can.
