It took me a while to figure out how cool forums are. It's not real time; it's time that exists in layers of our thoughts. In forums, I can carry on converstions with hundreds more people than I can in face-to-face real time. Just as in real-time groups, our personalities shift (I think we must be driven to make those shifts or otherwise we would be very insular -- not much benefit to evolution) but we can do it many more times in a single minute with the newer technology than we can naturally. Some chemical must be released so we do it more -- addiction. I'm addicted to conversations.
