But what do you mean "in person"? As available bandwidth expands, more
of the attributes that one associates with in person can be added.
Still there are some things....(I've heard that cybersex sucks, but I
doubt that it even does that!)....that are better handled in person.
Also I would venture to say that some of the flaming that occurs over
the web would never happen face to face and this may not be totally a
negative thing.

What does "full value" of in person cost in time and energy consumption,
Jeff? Please understand that I don't oppose any of what you have said.
I just want to train myself and perhaps others in exploring the
opportunity in virtual there as opposed to physically there. We're talk
orders of magnitude energy saving rather than percentages saved by
adopting alternate sources.
