Long distance love in the age of blogging

My best friend is in Bangalore or BLR as he's been writing it lately. It's been less than a week and we've been talking a bunch - sometimes more than we do when we're in the same city.

The technology has drastically changed since my college boyfriend moved to Japan just under a decade ago. Back in the old days, int'l phone calls were very expensive. Skype didn't exist and eyeball cams were really rare, let alone built-in cameras like the ones on the Macs. I've been using my computer to broadcast the living room via Skype and Y! messenger. I saw the inside of the Singapore airport from Ash's computer. I showed off my new haircut today using Skype.

The world is getting smaller and smaller.
