Internet Connection

It's hard to believe that it's been only two years, since so many things in my life changed drastically. I have never before had the feeling of learning such an amount of new things. I found friends that I admire and whose company I enjoy.

I am not connected to the internet - I am connected to people, via the internet

Or as John Perry Barlow stated in the Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace:

Ours is a world that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live.

This applies with all positive and negative aspects. However, how much I wish I could come over sometimes, physically, to have a beer and chat or to not talk at all; I am grateful for our new home of minds where we can share our thoughts, free from physical constraints.

We have never met in person - That does not make the meeting less personal

Thank you, #dgplug

P.S.: Looking forward to learn more, share more thoughts, and nevertheless meet in person, eventually ;-)
