Making Connections on The Connection

The Connection last night, which began talking about spam (referred to at one point as “a capitalist blog”), began talking about how people go online in droves to make connections and speak to their people in their own voices. I love how this is starting to come out! It’s certainly not a new thing, by any means (as your intrepid blogger remembers ranting on Compuserve back in the ‘80s), but given the backlash I’ve been hearing lately on how it is not “real” or the “get a life” variety, it’s nice to see others who see it as a community building medium.

Thanks to Edrie for calling me last night to tell me about this. You, gentle reader, can hear it yourself online.
