open areas: The Internet is a Place

openareas:

The internet is a bar, a living room, a kitchen table, an all night diner. It’s a gathering place where people meet to talk about sports and politics, about life and love, about music and art. It’s a place to tell jokes, to laugh, listen, learn and yes, love. We forge relationships in this place. We make friends. We meet people we intend to spend the rest of our lives with. We take those relationships and sometimes bring them into a physical space, meeting in groups or couples and when we do that, it always feels like we have just moved the conversation from one space to another. It doesn’t feel weird. It doesn’t feel different. It feels as right as talking to friends always feels.

The Internet is a place to find people you actually enjoy following and hearing from and hopefully meeting one day face to face.  

Before the Internet, finding interesting people within your niche was difficult.  You just had to get lucky with proximity.
