Web of Ideas: Netty Friends

with David Weinberger

There's no doubt that we're forming relationships over the Internet that feel something like friendship. But are they different enough from real-world friendships that they need their own term? How are they different? Are they better or worse? Is there a version of Gresham's Law at work here: Inferior Net-based relationships are driving out good real-world ones? Are there gender-based differences?
