Technology

Technology is a lovely thing. The virtual world I spend time in is an example of the principle. It's so easy to be someone different, or deeper, or to explore some facet that it's not feasible to elsewhere. Some facets are not suitable for conservative environments, or are too new for the person to feel comfortable expressing. I've found those are the ones more commonly expressed in SL, rather than just extending the same person from real life.

Technology also connects us to people. Populations are no longer limited to a particular piece of land for their friends. Being part of second life has meant that I made friends around the globe, indeed some of them among my best friends.

Of course, the anonymity of the net can lead people to some dark places and darker actions. The bullies and the trolls, as it were, are persistent. There's also the emotional abusers and the narcissists, but the other benefit of technology is it usually has a block function to remove the issues once they're recognized.
