A few days ago I was showing someone my Visor and the woman saw deadman in my contacts and said, “Deadman? you know someone named deadman?”
I laughed and said, “Yeah. He’s a cool guy. He’s a friend of mine.”
It was a strange moment. And in that instant I thought about how many people I’ve met through my blog and how many people I’ve never met ‘in person’ but that I consider ‘friends’. He and I hardly ever eMail, and since I’ve lost ICQ at work I hardly IM anyone … but it was great to read this post. It was great to say, “Yeah. He’s a cool guy. He’s a friend of mine.”
