Technology connects us instantaneously with global events and the plight of others around the world. We can feel their pain but we can also experience joy at a distance. Writing at the time of the Royal Wedding in the UK, it is clear that people crave the opportunity to be part of something celebratory. From all over the world people have come to line the streets. They could have watched on TV with the billions sharing the event and got a better view but there is something uplifting about sharing events with others, making joint memories last longer. Just connect.
