A magic moment with AKMA

I know I go on about how wonderful the web is but having just had a really, really nice evening with AKMA, having known him for nearly nine years but never having “met” I am yet again blown away by its power to connect people. The way we immediately felt at ease and the warmth in our friendship makes a mockery of those who say online is somehow secondary to face to face as a way of establishing relationships.


We covered everything from politics, to religion to, yes, sex and in a way that I just didn’t want to stop. As I said to the two young ladies sitting at the table next to us who we asked to take this photo – they had been witness to what, certainly for me, was a magic moment.

  1. Euan, I’m so glad to see someone else (a Brit, no less!) unashamed to talk about this offline magic thanks to the internet. It’s been such a huge part of my life and it rankles when people are dismissive and sneering as if it doesn’t exist. I love how happy you guys look!


  2. Right you are Euan. Having just had coffee (no picture!) with you last week in London after mostly conversing at a distance via Twitter and the occasional blog comment – I was struck that the power of the web is its ability to connect people to people (not just to inert documents).Best,Josh
