All these new forms of technology start new forms of communication. And while I don't think that anything can replace person to person contact, I really appreciate all these new developments. They make people who are far away much more accessible and you get to see a slightly different side to a person with every different mode of communication. So maybe they are not taking away anything, just adding different dimensions to our interactions. Either way, I'm pretty happy that I see my godson growing up even though he lives in a different country, or I can talk to my best friend for two hours if I want too for free. It is amazing when you stop and think about it.
