Answering questions and responding with comments online can be fun and informative, yet for me it always feels 'split off' from a whole experience of having real dynamics with others. // Is that because this virtual communication, even when written thoughtfully and with some heart, is still mental? // It feels at times almost like sitting across the table, or around a campfire, but never fully and only in mental imagination. It does not involve the whole person. // So I am wondering, has anyone else felt this? Do you ever meet in person with other hubbers over a cup of coffee in your area?

Becky, glad to hear that your in-person contact was a fun experience.
Twice, in the 90s, I also met in-person with online contacts. As I look back, those were really pivotal experiences. Stories in themselves & positive life-changing for everyon
The only words of your answer I do not agree with are, 'This will sound very unfriendly...' None of the answer sounded unfriendly.
It sounded direct, honest and real. Also insightful & enriching!
I look for deeper dialog, not friends.
I love it!
virtual = almost
virtual & 'actual'? - yet effect & inspiration are the comparison
'word' is a word with horns - haha! - my ' is for looks.
the purpose, hubs. - yes, HP's purpose. yet why change something into what it is not?
Hello EP! I ponder how many times with a why & a what only having been here for 2 yrs. I would think the knowledge of change would be interesting. Ponder HP began 6 or 7 yrs hence. Then chat was the universe. Evolution from chat to hubs? Niche?
