Why it's OK to be an internet dork

Yes, thank you! I've been saying this for years:

"In the past, it has been suggested that the internet and e-mail could diminish real relationships.

But the report, entitled The Strength of Internet Ties, found that e-mail supplements rather than replaces offline communications.

..."This creates a new basis for community. Rather than relying on a single community for social support, individuals often actively seek out a variety of appropriate people and resources for different situations."

And that, my friends, is why the Internet is awesome.
