I guess I should not be as concerned about those that I won’t be able to reach. I should be more concerned about helping those who I can help in ways that make sense for me.
I am a firm believer that more can probably be done to encourage people to access online resources, though at times it feels as though I am but a lone voice in the wilderness.
It would seem to make sense that there should be groups out there who would gain a lot from my efforts at contributing to furthering the idea of making more use of internet based resources within some groups post-intensive-rehab-settings.
Perhaps my idea is still too amorphous (without shape) so people can’t really get their arms around the idea.
The librarian in me recognizes the potential that exists with the internet in its current form, and most likely as it will evolve in the future, and sees that there is a lot of information out there–waiting to be accessed.
Communication is an important life-skill.
Computers mediating that communication serve to level the playing field, and cause people to accept ideas at face value as opposed to generally filtered through the lenses of particular biases linked to physical realities and bodies.
I like the notion of computer mediated communications.
