So, I’m thinking the measure of “new people” shouldn’t be that neither of us knows them already, it should be that one of us doesn’t know them already … and using that perspective, this would could. I didn’t know most of the people – I’d met Andrea at et4online, and I knew Scott, but otherwise, I didn’t feel like I ‘knew’ anyone else … so from my perspective, I’ve been introduced to a bunch of new cool people thanks to the Virtually Connecting program 🙂
