In 2009 I wrote the blog post below in response to a post by [Wikipedia Co-founder] Larry Sanger.

Relevant meaning — relevant for learners who may live in to the 22nd Century. One note, in the end Twitter has led to lifelong friendships, Twitter is why I live where I live, where I’ve had the opportunity for great work with children.
