More live blogging from the eState Symposium.

The afternoon plenary session features three Champlain College students who basically outlined the various ways they use the internet.

Joel Pelletier: He described how he playsboard games online with his girlfriend, who's in Massachusetts, how's it's important to have a shared social interaction when you're far apart. He also talked about using wikis to keep intouch with friend over the summer. "It's just another way for us to get together," he says.

My own observations re: games — my partner is a Scramble-playing fiend on Facebook, and she's the absolute last person I would have ever expected to play games online. She used to be an organic farmer!
