Being part of a global community: where did my life go?

Sept-Community

My association with Joomla has mostly been enjoyable: I’ve made some good friends… although I have my share of frenemies as well.  I’ve travelled the country and the world and I even have a photo memento of me giving Brian Teeman* a smooch on the cheek at J & Beyond in 2013. But above all, I’ve learned so much from the almost-daily contact I have with Joomlers everywhere whether they’re first-time newbies or whether they’re hard-core web evangelists. I wouldn’t have missed it for quids.

Being part of a global community: what does that mean for me?

May-Community

"Hey! There’s going to be a Joomla User Group right here in this neighborhood," my partner Hilda said. "The first meeting is next week. You are going to attend." No way was I going to attend. The whole idea of going there didn’t appeal to me at all. So I said: "Nah, I don’t know. This is for people who know much more about Joomla than I do. Not for me."

What does it mean for me to be part of a global community, specifically the Joomla community?

March-Astrid

I recently had an interesting conversation with my daughter. She couldn't believe I grew up in a house without a telephone. We got a phone when I was 13 years old. But the reason for getting it was primarily to keep in touch with my grandma. Just calling a friend was expensive at that time. Who you spent your free time with was determined by who lived nearby. Today, I enjoy not limiting my activities primarily to people in my local area. On the Internet, I can easily communicate with people who share my interests.
