Webheads chat logs from April 15, 2001

Meet the people in the chat today

Vance Maggi Ying Lan Moral Felix
UAE Germany Taiwan China Brazil

When we spend so much time in voice chat, there is not much for the other Webheads to read about afterwards, so I thought I would try something new today. I will tell you here what we talked about and invite you to join in our discussions.

We are fortunate in our chats to have people present from so many different countries. A unique aspect of the Internet is that it crosses borders without visas and puts us in touch with people like us from all parts of the world. When these people come together they can talk without concern for what their governments would have them believe. Each person in the chat realizes that his or her view is biased by each country's media coverage of events we talk about, but the people in our chats try hard to see around the bias and understand each others' point of view.

In this chat we had Ying Lan from Taiwan, Moral from Kunming, China, and Vance and Maggi, American expatriates (living away from their native country). As usual we talked about a lot of issues. I'd like to mention them here and invite you to comment.

So if you were at the chat, what else did we say, and what was your viewpoint? If you missed the chat, what do you think about these issues? We'd love to hear from you,
