"There are no islands any more."
-Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1940
We can really see the connections between people and between communities more and more as we open our eyes to it. The internet is an interesting thing. In some ways it has isolated us, as we sit alone on our computers. But in many other ways, it has helped us to establish and build relationships with people, and to create communities that we otherwise may not have been a part of. It has opened up avenues of communication that hadn't existed before.
