The thing that really irritated me about the original of this one is that, 10 years ago, it'd have been fresh. 10 years ago, it was still a little bit of a novelty to have met people because of the 'net that you might otherwise not have encountered. 10 years ago, there was an Eastercon panel on it. 10 years ago, well, a bit longer to be precise, we had a wedding where already half the guests knew each other because of the 'net. And before that, there was no-one at our engagement party that we'd not met because of the 'net, not even each other.
But now it's staler than a very stale thing that has gone totally stale indeed. It'd be more interesting to know who on LJ has met no-one (really or virtually) they're pleased to have met, because of the 'net.
