That's so cool. There are even sites out there where your avatar can have therapy sessions with your counselor's avatar for people who have social phobias! I can see the implications for those who are incapacitated to the point they can't leave the house for therapy or they are geographically isolated from getting to a therapist.

I thought the implications were profound actually.

Did you ever read "Microserfs" by Douglas Coupland ?
He's Canadian, eh?
After reading, my views on what could be accomplished on a "human" level in cyberspace were challenged considerably.
That has only been proven to me on deep levels that I am so friggin' grateful for by my experiences with some here at MS.

Keep on rockin' in the cyber world.
Neil Young...
He's Canadian...




wait for it...






eh?
beauty
