I do not agree John,
With you argument we would refuse to read books too, because they don't 
spring from someone we can see and touch.
for better or for worse the human drive to communicate always has us 
reaching out.

My relationships with the people who I meet in the flesh are enhanced 
and enriched by those maintained across digital networks and vice versa.

After all I think you and I have only met once in physical space and yet 
your writings and conversation add an important ecological sensibility 
to my world view.

Rather we need to coordinate better in good faith to create tools and 
community for mutual benefit and to resist inequitable and alienating 
forces where we meet them.
