There is a vocal part of the populace who says that technology disconnects people from other people. They say that being head-down in a computer is no way to connect with other humans. To this, I say, “Hogwash.” I’ll speak personally here, but I know that there are others who are in the same boat. I have never been MORE connected to family, friends and colleagues. Through e-mail, facebook, myspace, linked-in, youtube and other collaborative and “connecting” technologies, I know what a heck a lot more of my peeps are doing now than ever before. Sure, I still like getting the holiday card updates and personal e-mails and phone calls, but technology allows me to track my (Cisco plug alert!!) human network seamlessly and keeps me more connected to people, not less.So, on this Valentine’s Day, I say, connect with your universe through technology, send your loved ones an e-card, order flowers online, book a restaurant reservation on opentable…or, go to match.com or yahoo personals or whichever site and meet the person of your dreams online…and, back on the personal side, I met my wife online some four years ago and couldn’t be happier. Happy Valentine’s Day, Bella!!
