Bringing together teens from various school districts
and present a venue for socialization and recreation,
building friendships through
common interests and cooperative ambition.
Presenting a reason to step away from
the computer, the TV, and the cell phone,
and step out into a world where the
status updates are about a plant’s growth,
changes in the channel effect
what time you go kayaking,
and tweeting is left up to the birds.
Reminding students that online social networks
were inspired by more tangible community connections,
and those traditions of face-to-face
communication and collaboration
towards a common goal
are still alive and well today.
