In my novel (set in 2050) I paint communities evolved to being "intensely" cooperative and face to face - for celebration, work and spirit. They use the "Net" to interact with folks in far away communities - to share knowledge, get help solving problems (just like cohousing-l) and understand each other. Course the 2050 Net is more like StarTrek - not typing little squiggles at each other - click, clickety-click. So that cyberspace isn't primarily a solo thing, most net screens are located in a common space, not in the dark recesses of each dwelling. So, even today the net can be a great resource, but being with your fellow community mates should be higher priority most of the time. And, most people require some time to themselves -- you don't do *everything* in community - at least not in a community where I could live happily. Balance, balance, balance.... Mike M
