Every once in a while someone will poo-poo the idea of “Internet Relationships” not being ‘real’; or that it’s silly to think we can become invested in chat rooms like IRC or MUCKs or MMORPG’s. But these are also the people who quickly forget what “Pen Pals” were. The Internet didn’t change the fact that ‘Pen Palls’ and ‘Play Chess By Mail’ friends still exist, they’ve just got MASSIVELY shorter PING times now!

(Show Notes)

Intro – Big Blue Marble

The Earth’s a big blue marble when you see it from out there…

Closer, getting closer,
Perspectives start to change, things look a little strange,
As we get closer.

Closer, growing closer,
No need to be afraid, our troubles start to fade,
As we get closer.

Together is a word we must learn to understand,
If we ever want to get to know each other better.
Together is a word that holds tomorrow in it’s hand,
Tomorrow’s just another day to get together, and…
Get closer, closer, closer, closer
