For Saying Yes

Maybe if I combine my interests, I can come up with something that will interest others?

It’s also easy to dehumanize strangers by “lumping” them with their web sites or their demographics: “the Jezebel girls are all so X,” “gay dads are always complaining about Y,” “everybody on Tumblr is Z.” I think part of making things “personal” involves remembering that the people who put things on the Internet are individuals, both in the sense that they have feelings and that they’re not all elected representatives, sent to Internet Congress to speak on behalf of all Asians or alcoholics or teen detectives or Klingons.
