The internet. You never know who you will meet. I “met” someone the other day who was deaf. She was mentioning that our company website had removed the MoPix markings on the showtimes. (As a side we changed it because that had previously only indicated which auditorium had the technology, not which had the movies.) But through communicating with her, I ended up at her blog, and through her blogroll entering a whole new (deaf) community that I had never interacted with before.
It just amazed me as I thought about it. On the internet, you just don’t know
who is on the other side.
Could be black or white, Indian or American or African, deaf or musician (or both), athlete or in a wheelchair (or both), pretty or ugly. It does not hide intelligence or ignorance, linguistic ability, open or closed minds. It opens and levels the communication barriers in a number of ways.
Just a mind expanding thought on the internet.
