Is technology helping/hurting friendships?

Ben has a good post that talks about friendship.  He makes some very good points about mutual investment in the friendship. He also linked to this
USA today article,
25% of Americans have no one to confide in.  This article made me stop and think and it makes me go back to this post.  I have to confess, I’m not the tech junkie some others are, but I do find myself at the computer quite a bit.  The article also mentions social networking as a possible remedy.  Are the kids onto something with all the tech stuff they are involved in, or will it hurt their ability to make friendships in the future?  (note: a related post).

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
