Contrary to what some would have you believe, the internet is a wonderful thing.
For example: a bunch of musicians, who hitherto have only conversed in the cyberspace of an Irish music website that I run, decided to travel hundreds of miles to Montana to meet up, play tunes and have some fun. They chronicled the whole thing, where else, but on the internet.
Sometimes running an online community can be a royal pain but when stuff like this happens, it’s all worth it.
Just think: these people would probably never have met (much less travelled hundreds of miles to meet) if it hadn’t been for an Irish music website that I decided to put together for fun. I can’t even begin to express how cool I find that.
