Name: Craig Kahle
Bio: Internet user for 10 years
Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People
Headline: More Information, Less Contact
Nutshell: The internet allows people all over the world to share their personal photos, bios, etc., but because of this ease to get info, people rely less on in-person contact.
While the ability offered by the internet to share information with anyone, anywhere in the world at any time is liberating, it has its drawbacks. Instead of relying on interpersonal contact to receive information, people will stay home instead of getting out, seeing friends, and first hand interviews.
