If you want “generosity” and “charity” maybe get some friends and no online “friends” are not really your friends I mean like real friends in real life…


oldmanaloneGreat blogospheric minds collide in a passionate Greek wrestling grapple over what constitutes “generosity” and “charity” in online interactions. Not surprisingly, both have a long history of “generous” and “charitable” interactions online – so their word must be golden.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

In the end, maybe we should not invest the internets with so much affective capital? Maybe get a couple of friends, get a couple of beers and than just, you know, hang out with them?

  1. Hey Mikhail😉 ! Are you opposing real friends with online friends? what about your dead friends and your living-friends? or the friends you drink beer with, so to spend your valuable time, and the dead friends that you read on books, that illustrate your mind with their concepts? what about the friends you never had and never will, oh but that you still long to have, at least in your imagination? or what about the friend that would only exist in the only case of you being all too alone in a desert island?
