Through my blogs, and related web sites, these people: Laurence Grotheer and Jeanette Glicksman Grotheer, Elaine Whitebook and Kimberly Fracchia Lalli (friends of mine) have made connections with old friends of theirs. Some of them have had multiple old friends who have found them just by doing an Internet search on their names.
That is one of the powers of the Internet, the ability to make unexpected connections with new people as well as people whom you thought were gone from your life.
On a personal level, it is neat to know that I have been able to make a difference, in a totally unexpected way, in my friend's lives. Because I have an interest in technology, and due to the conversational nature of the Internet (and the power of search engines) I have been able to do things that make my friends happy and make their lives better. I think that is kinda cool!

What do these people have in common?
