My radio talk this morning with Alan Neal of CBC Ottawa (broadcast date still to be determined) turned into a wide-ranging discussion of the social aspects of the Internet, jumping off from the FlyLady daily-cleaning-tip Web site.

[Derek in Gore-Tex]I've come to think that as it becomes more ubiquitous, the Net also becomes more transparent, letting us be our human selves and get into chatty little groups that just happen to bring people together from all over the world instead of just being local.

I commented to Alan that, with the weather as it's been this past week in Vancouver, we're less like a city by the sea than a city under the sea. That's why I had to dress in my full Gore-Tex® regalia (shown in the picture) today.

Oh, and I've finally made my April 2001 Vancouver Sun article available here, although only as a scanned picture. All the links listed are still in my regular visting rotation, and are in my links list in the right column of this page.
