Community Hokey Pokey

T-Shirt I like: What if the hokey pokey is what it’s all about?

Community: Actually, I think community is what it’s all about and I think people may start looking for some real face-to-face people contact after they spend hours interacting via their computers. A New York Times article (I found it on Scripting News discusses a new survey on the impact of the internet. I love the ‘net and I definitely think communities do develop through online interaction. But I think people need hugs too. Real physical ones, not the virtual ones offered by a zillion over-sappy websites.

Dancing (almost any kind, not just square dancing) offers friendly physical contact. Not to mention a chance to get out of one’s chair in front of the computer and move around a little.
