"...there is also a shared group experience.

This is difficult, yet not impossible, to recreate online."

I'm sure some people feel more connected to their online communities even when in a social environment. On a busy Saturday night I recently witnessed party-goers active on Facebook via cellphones whilst stood amongst their friends in bars and clubs.

Not to contradict you, Cliff. I do much better when I'm in flow, with the conversation, than when I try to come up with something clever because I have the time to do it. However, it does take years of execution, research, and learning to "come up" with stuff.

It takes time to think through what should be said - and what should be left unsaid. Your "tag team" approach to presenting with Beth Harte gave both of you time to come up with appropriate stories.
