Thing #12: Twitter and "ambient awareness"

I've been in Cbus for over 13 years now and have often felt lonely, even though I have friends and friendly colleagues. What's missing is that easy and constant physical presence that I used to have being in a big family in a small town. Hard to be lonely when you are rarely alone, although I have to admit that I did feel lonely while in KY, too. So maybe it's me. Anyway, this NY Times article sums it up better than I can. And as the article suggests, I, too, felt closer to my friends through the banal details of their days because of Twitter. THANKS Twitter for bringing my friends closer to me.
