I really like the Rheingold quote. I really saw how the rhizo14 group was a community when I was diagnosed with cancer. It was one area that clearly went beyond connection. Other than my mother-in-law’s postcards, many of the gifts I’ve received and notes of encouragement come from rhizo community – much more so than any other social network in which I am apart. So, I have concrete ‘evidence’ of how this group is different from other social networks.
