I had the nicest experience today. I received a call from Avi Kaplan, a recent college graduate looking for his first "real" job and doing some networking in DC. I have to admit getting a call from a stranger who wants to meet for coffee is a little off-putting. But once we started talking it was clear that we "travel" in the same online circles and this is why I decided to meet.
Maybe this is another gift of our Connected Age - having faith in strangers.
