Ersatz Chats: The sight bits & sound “bites” of social networking

We spend so much time imitating communication; social networking sites do promote contact...sometimes as the end itself. But do they really promote connection, community, communion with another person? Is social networking a conversation without context? Was that great 20th century philosopher James Brown (a.k.a. The Godfather) presciently, prophetically on point...that we are a culture "talking loud and saying nothing"? Join Cecil Prescod and myself, Celeste Carey as we muse over the demise of face-to-face social interaction and blame social networking sites .

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
