Had a really nice hangout this morning with folks from @ohn and it was really fun! It's great to meet new people and realize that maybe I'm making new friends.

It also got me thinking about richness of social interaction and humanity where at one extreme we operate in text and emojis while at the other end we can spend time together in the same physical space with no tech required.

In this light, Open Hospitality Network ( is taking on perhaps the hardest kind of technology project where people use this tech intentionally to connect with real people.

What if the social platforms we use, instead of suggesting we follow celebrities to increase engagement, saw that we're spending an unhealthy amount of time in a low-quality medium and suggested we pick up the phone or arrange a video chat or meetup?
