Thank you, Matt. I think combining the simplicity of close, intimate relationships while remaining open to the opportunity of developing new connections is exactly what I aim to do. And I think that the Internet is an integral piece to that puzzle. The Internet allows us to connect and remain open, while also giving us the power to decide when such connecting happens.
If I’m having a dinner conversation with a friend that I just met in person for the first time, I can consciously choose to turn off the rest of the world and focus on developing the connection that is now physically present to me.
Meanwhile, when I’m alone, as I am right now, I can share and connect with lots of different people all over the world within the span of a few short minutes (certainly not at the depth I would achieve face-to-face, but the point is any one of these connections could eventually blossom into a face-to-face meeting).
