Church of the Helpful Interwebs

The other day, I was scolding myself for letting my Three Thanks blog go stale. It really wasn't that hard to be grateful in three little bites, after all - it's practically every day that I whisper a little "thank you" to someone on the interwebs. Everyone should know what it feels like to be helped by a complete stranger - especially when said stranger doesn't even know he or she is helping you.

In this episode, we discuss the oddities of Salome's shopping habits (resulting from her domestic servitude) and the magic of one Colorado Hermit - a disciple in the Church of the Helpful Interwebs.

The relevant links for those who can't get enough.
  • Amazon Vine™ : Amazon Vine™ invites the most trusted reviewers on Amazon to post opinions about new and pre-release items to help their fellow customers make informed purchase decisions. 
  • Our hero, Colorado Hermit
Why are we talking about toaster ovens and hermits? Because we too often forget that what matters most in a network society is the connections, not the containers. We too often kneel at the alter of the technology gods - but the interwebs are made of people - like our hero, Colorado Hermit.

Side note: If anyone knows a rock star reviewer of home fire extinguishers, please let us know. Better yet, you can just contact Salome directly.
