GUEST,Neil Lowe BS: Cyberspace Friendships (127* d) RE: BS: Cyberspace Friendships 21 Mar 00


Salons...I heard a little snippet of info that salons were making a comeback - parlors where *intelligent* or *thoughtful* (however one chooses to define *intelligent* or *thoughtful*) conversation is the rule rather than the exception. 3-D/Real Time/Meatspace versions of what we do here...a phenomenon, I understand, once popular many moons ago that now reemerges to fill a...need?

Metchosin made the observation that forums like these have revived interest in the fine art of letter writing. Are we now on the threshold of a resurgence in the fine art of conversation? What a radical idea. People might actually turn off their TV's and start talking to each other again. Is it "the end of the world as we know it?" Is The Mudcat Salon not far behind?

Just pondering,

Neil
