The Irrelevance of Distance

One of the great things about social media (specifically Facebook) is that it has made it easier to maintain connections with friends who live far away. I met this really nice girl from Colorado named Ashley at a photography workshop this week, and if I ever happen to be in Colorado I know exactly who (and how) to find her. It's incredible how much smaller our world is becoming. And yet somehow it seems more complex and unknowable than ever. For me, Facebook is the adhesive that binds together all of the connections and friendships that I have formed over the years. I can only imagine how limited and disconnected I would be without Zuckerberg's glorious creation.
