words are bells
let them ring!

We are already connected via being human and being here (alive,now)
The level of connections vary according to desire,opportunity and access
No one can sustain huge numbers of deep intimate friendships
Nor do we wish endless shallow acquaintanceships
Robin Dunbar posits 150 as the optimum relationship number-
in order to adequately meet the needs of more than "Facebook friends"
Brian Uzzi researched Broadway shows to see why so many flopped-
the truth was in association-a mixture of relationships is most productive
Tithing for an"interesting person "fund allows effective expansion of friendships-
supporting with "small gifts"those with whom you feel affinity
Billions of us have yet to meet each other.We probably never will.
Whether "Looking for Mr Goodbar"or seeking Angel Funding for a startup-
virtual links mean less than introduced third parties.Data sharing means less
than friendship sharing-common interests are best.And you have yet to meet the rest
of our human family...
