Have you met a cyber friend in person?

Not too long ago it was considered weird/taboo to meet people in person that you initially met on the internet. I still remember the first time I heard about someone getting married after meeting their significant other online. My first and lasting impression at that time was “That’s strange!” Nowadays online match making is much more common and mainstream. People are not only using online dating sites to meet people but also meeting via chatrooms, social networking sites (Facebook, My Space) and forums. Blogging is also opening a whole new online environment for meeting new people in person. This month I’d appreciate it if you could cast your vote in my online poll available in the right panel of my blog. I’m interested to see whether you’ve ever met a cyberspace friend in person.

In addition to voting in the poll, I’d also be interested to hear your thoughts on this topic. Would you meet any cyber friends in person? If not, why not? If so, where did you meet the person online? What mutual interest brought you together e.g. romance, hobbies, business etc. How did the face to face meeting turnout? Do you think most people still consider online to face to face meeting as weird or is it accepted as mainstream?

Favre Gate: Finally a critical look


I finally found an article that discusses the logical implications of Favre's conversation with the Lions. I couldn't agree with the article any more. Check it out here.


Personally I think this is just a case of the media manufacturing a controversial story. Sadly I have to agree with Dave when he says that "for the life of me, even after hours of soul searching, I can't figure out why so many people are so willing, even eager, to believe the worst about Brett Favre."

Snow.....in October??
