Those of us who participate in online communities comprehend just how real such communities are. Cyberspace is clearly psychological and emotional space. The bonds we form are just as real as the bonds we form with co-workers, physical neighbors and classmates.
Recently, several online communities were saddened and disturbed to hear that Cleta, well known on Twitter, FaceBook, Geek Shed IRC and lockergnome, had taken ill. You can read about the medical situation that led up to hospitalization at her blog. Thanks to the efforts of Chibit in #cleta at Geekshed and Meshelly making a few phone calls, we know that she had surgery, is in ICU and, although recovering, she will be there a while.
This show is dedicated to Cleta, one of the sweetest and dearest community members any of us have been blessed to know. She has listened to Lumpy, Meshelly and Indie Soup so often, that we certainly know enough songs that she like to fill 2 hours. If you know Cleta and would like to send her get well wishes please use 818-81-INDIE to leave her a voicemail or send emails to info[at]indienation[dot]fm and we will get them to her.
This show originally streamed live on indienation.fm and is broken into two parts for publication. As usual, we welcome your comments and feedback. (I think it is also a good place to leave get well wishes.)
