I have a wonderful cousin in Jackson, Mississippi, named John Scanlon. I also have a fabulous god-daughter in Jackson, Mississippi, named Lizzy Jones. These people had no connection or knowledge of each other until last week when they met on a beach in Florida. Then they realized they both knew me, and they could easily tell me what had happened because we are all in Facebook.
I just love the 21st century. Even though I haven't seen either of them in a couple of years, I am feeling close to them right now due to the wonders of modern technology and the Web 2.0 revolution that lets us do collaborative websites like Wikipedia, blogging and Facebook.
