Lonely? Need a Friend? Just Ping Ning

Remember, years ago, decades ago, when some people actually lived isolated lives of solitary thought, staring out their living room windows across the windswept prairies?  Remember when people could be alone, and lonely? Not too long from now, school kids reading such tales will ask: “Why didn’t they just jump online and join a social network?”

 Facebook and MySpace, my daughter’s obsession,  are the big dogs at the head of the parade, but now anyone can form their own social network of butterfly collectors, Oscar Wilde lovers, bass-boat builders or Stephen King fans. Just ping Ning here for details.
