Rich relationships

Yesterday I met João Vasconcelos Costa of Reformar a Educação Superior, my tranlsation partner, online pal whose blog is one of my principle ways of keeping up with conversations related to Ensino Superior in Portugal.

It reinforced for me that way that knowing someone online changes your relationship with them when you meet them f2f and the way that changes your relationship with them online... The two modes make for a different type of understanding and reading of a person than you get if you know someone only in one mode.

In fact, knowing someone only f2f seems so one-dimensional that you wonder why people do it! Only communicating with someone same-time same-place is like always talking to them through a glass door.

What you say is just fascinating.. and such a contrast to what people tend to think...
I am still discovering whether I really agree or not....

Josien ... I think that when we met up we managed to launch straight into a conversation we wouldn't have had without the intermediary of the blog.

Oh .. and the wine too perhaps :-)
