Regarding what Derek wrote about life being better after you’re online, I noticed while unwrapping today’s arriving wedding gifts that four online friends each sent me something. Four people I didn’t know before I had this site and the other one. Four people I knew of, but did not know at all a year ago. Actually, while 2 of those are good face-to-face friends now, one other I only speak to online, and the other one I’ve never even met.
Ignore the crappy weblog article that prompted Derek’s post, but pay attention to his words, as they are good ones.
