Being two places at one time

It used to be impossible.  How many times have you said, “Well, I can’t be two places at one time?” I’ve said it plenty, but I’m beginning to realize that through the “magic” of the Internet, particularly through social, streaming and real time connections, it is — in a way — possible to be two places at one time.  Last week, Martha Woodruff, blogger for JMU’s affiliated NPR station, WMRA, attended the Harrisonburg Summit on Strengthening Local Business and Economy.  From her computer, she blogged about what was going on. Anybody with a computer could follow the proceedings.  And recently, Virginia State Senator Mark Obenshain, a former member of the Board of Visitors, held a virtual town hall.  Two places at once. Whether it’s a good idea or a bad one — sociologists and brain function specialists are already debating its efficacy — it’s here.  How has the ability to be in two places at one time changed your world?
