One of my favorite artists from our site just friended me on Facebook… and as it turns out she is a student in Baghdad!

How new this kind of interaction is! I was fortunate enough to attend a highly diverse, multi-national high-school, and it provided my first exposure to foreign cultures and ideas. I’m inspired when I think about how the web can, and does, bring this to everyone, no matter the phase of your life, or location.

Important question: if you had the opportunity to talk with a new friend in Iraq, what would you say or ask? Would love to hear your thoughts, this is an opportunity I don’t want to squander.
