Much has been said about the current revolution in communication technologies – the fact that the Internet is quickly becoming the primary place of commerce, culture, learning, research, even social relationships. Here I’m hoping to start and develop conversations about how we can assess the costs and benefits of virtual communication technologies, and how we can use these technologies as tools to sustain human relationships, not replace or truncate them. This is particularly relevant to those of us who “create content,” formerly known as writers, editors, and publishers, and those who care about elevating the quality of the Internet as a public commons. I submit that digital communication can help us all add even more value to the world through our communication, whatever our area of interest, if we’re mindful about how we do it. 

All of our experiences are data points of the project. Join the conversation!
