Just to say, a blogger I have known and been reading for quite some time suddenly showed herself as being human when she created another blog and wrote about her travels. She became a real person in my life rather than a crusty old academic. Of course I knew she had a real life outside her basic blog, but it was very interesting to observe, and if I am nothing in life, I am an observer.
Premier Melbourne radio broadcaster Jon Faine casts aspersions on internet friendships and relationships. He is so so wrong about that. I value people I know solely on the internet. It may be a character defect of mine, but I really don't care. I like my blog friends. They interest me and stimulate me and learn me heaps of stuffs including the write way to express English scetence constriction.
