Those small-town values Sarah Palin was talking about? They're on Twitter

Interesting New York Times article that suggests that one side-effect of Twitter, Facebook, et al. is that we are returning to small-town sense of community.

I suppose that's not actually a new observation. SeƱor Phin and I effectively had that conversation three years ago, sitting on the floor of his London flat and drinking wine. The last bit of that sentence is irrelevant but it makes me and the Phins seem more bohemian.

They are made of wicker, if that helps.

Dammit. I could have been the next Malcolm Gladwell but for my crippling laziness.
