In 2003 I decided to keep a picture diary and chart a whole year by taking one picture per day. I’m going to republish them here but hopefully it will not take a full year to upload. The pictures tell a story within a story but only those who were there will know this. Howard Rheingold very kindly wrote a foreward to this story which you can read below or click here to go directly to the story.
|Steve Thompson’s 365 is much more than a collection of photographs — it’s a testament to the kinds of warm human relationships that can develop online between people who may seldom or never meet each other face to face. I’ve never met Steve in person, but I communicate with him online every day. In 2001, he invited me to give a speech in England. I was on my way to the airport on September 11 when the terrorist attacks shut down air travel. Steve was determined to make the connection, despite the obstacles, and managed to facilitate a video tele-conference at the scheduled time. Steve’s story is conveyed by technology, but the connection is a human one.
