OK, I’m no DeNiro. But I had a little reminder yesterday about the power of the Internet to connect people. The knowledge that this person had found my blog and was reading about what I have been up to since last we met gave me mixed feelings. A warm feeling that old friends still watch out for me, a nostalgic feeling for not being able to spend the time I’d like to with people, so that Face-2-Face friends become FaceBook friends, and finally a little feeling of disquiet that, as I constantly remind my students, “stuff” you put out there on the Internet stays out there.
In my case, it’s a really good thing, because I love knowing that even if I can’t have a conversation with a friend, they can still know what I’m thinking about. Right now, I’m thinking about you. Yes, you. Thanks for letting me exist in your personal Internet space.
