Colin Pinegar untangled his virtual and real relationships with an infographic, and ended up confronting some real-world messiness.
Pinegar emphasized the importance of the physical aspects of friendship—actually being around one another.

Really fascinating stuff so far! One of my favorite quotes:
Great crisis leaders are not like the rest of us; nor are they like mentally
healthy leaders. They’re often intelligent, prone to poor physical
health, the products of privileged backgrounds, raised by parents in
confl ict, frequently nonreligious, and ambitious.
