    The End is Near.

    Randy, I've been hearing this for the last 50yrs. It has got to be true.

    *First cell phone in 2006 (flipper)....haven't graduate to anything else.
    *First computah in 2000....to use AutoCAD to redesign da house.

    Hmmm, anything else is on-need basis.....maybe I'm just too practical.

    I tried to keep a landline, but it was dead often, lost it entirely around 2008.

    Had to sell my stick shift cars when my ankles failed. I can shift without a clutch, once drove 1000 miles to Texas like that. Ankles fixed now!

    Wasted lot's of money on everything digital. All scrap quickly.

    Didn't have a car for 5 years, then I left the city. Here I need one, however eagerly awaiting the robot helpers.

    I do prefer my handsaws, far less dust.

    Had to switch to distilled water as the water is bad everywhere.

    Still waiting for Godot.

    Re: Anyone else here on Instagram?

    No. I really have a dislike for social media.
    I was on Facebook with over 2k friends a couple of years ago. Dumped it.
    Came back on FB after my cousins cried they wanted me back in their daily life.
    I think I have less than 25 friends there, that I can handle, but no more.

    Re: Anyone else here on Instagram?

    I grew tired and deleted my Instagram account couple of years ago but created a new one some time later. I just haven't been very active user since. Anyhow I'm now building a 8x10 camera and chose to document the build on Instagram. I might add some other content too.

    Re: Anyone else here on Instagram?

    I do..grudgingly and little used

    this is my second one.. I got kicked off IG the first day with my first

    I been a little more careful with the new account though and use it to see what some friends are up to.. I rarely post anything there though

    it just seems like a full time job for it to be worth more than a bucket of spit

    I am, and waited like 10+ years before I went. Post there regularly.. IG can be inspiring.
    Recent work (mine) is from 5x7 cyanotype glass plates. I've also been making a
    silver chloride silver gelatin paper made from local sea water and i print out the plates &c.
    anyways. .. @jnanian

    I'm on IG from my Instant Film days. If I posted four photos of my camera I got a free pack of Instax film (10 shots). Trading advertising for MiNT Camera for free film for me. Led me down a delightful trail of interviewing strangers on the street: @TouchingMyHeart

    The bad is having your mind take in a lot of images that aren't special. The good can be being turned onto images/concepts of real value you wouldn't have otherwise seen. For me, it takes discipline to gather in the good with least bad.

    If one is not registered on Instagram, it's not possible to view more than a handful of pictures before being blocked. So posting material on Instagram and nowhere else is a great way to annoy those who don't want to register with a social media company.

    I hear where you are coming from, but it's also trivial to register a free email with a fake name and then make an account, with very little to connect you to it (use a VPN if you are so inclined to hide even from your ISP). Added benefit is following a variety of photographers you may be interested in keeping up with, searching hashtags to virtually "scout" locations, etc.

    Of course one could also rage against posting/viewing any photograph online because it's "just not the same as a silver print held in your hand!"
