The Kidney Shot Heard Round the World

I’ve always been irritated by argument that online social networks somehow hinder offline relationships. Proponents of this viewpoint always conjure a picture of a now empty stoop on a tree-lined street. For most, I think online socializing replaces the absence of socializing. And often, friendships that start online can grow into something more.

Take for example a couple of dudes named Jim and Larry who first connected playing in a historical fantasy baseball league at Imagine Sports.

Their connection was built around the playing of an online game. But then, Jim needed a kidney.

Concentration is important!
