Mothers

I just made a livejournal account for my mom, lilybah, I have no idea if she'll use it regularly, but it'll be fun if she does. Does anyone else have parent types on livejournal? Do they have friends? Given that all my lj friends are folks I knew at CMU, I'm not sure that anyone from my mom's generation can really create that easy kind of connected community. At least I don't think any of her friends are really 'connected'. Do folks have non-geek parents who consider the internet an essential part of their communication network? To talk to someone other than their kids? I'm sure they exist, but how common is it in the boomer generation? I guess all my uncles are pretty connected, they're also pretty geeky. None of my aunts are really connected. Well, they have email, but often as not, on our family blog one of their husbands passes messages from them, because well, they just aren't that way. They like flowers, and telephone conversations... they use computers but they aren't in their blood I guess. Eh, I'm just rambling now.
