My 2 cents about what it means to be part of a global community

This month, a month later than expected due to a minor family emergency, I'll talk about putting the finishing touches which make your site more polished and professional.

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


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.
