“What has the Internet done to community?”

What a morning. I’ve just heard that the well-known sociologist Barry Wellman, with whom I’ve is giving the 8th annual Lewis Mumford Lecture on “What has the Internet done to community?” at SUNY Albany. He and his colleagues have urged me to come (Barry realized suddenly that we must be quite close to Albany–he’s traveling from Toronto), and this is such a conjunction of desirable things that I may just not be able to resist, though given my departure for Beijing early Thursday morning and the yoga workshop I’m attending morning and evening, it does create some complications. But being a believer in real world, in-person meetings, this seems too good to pass up.
