    if there's someone you can carpool with -- or someone who can pick you up if you take public transportation partway then get you back in time to make your last train/bus/whatever home.

    I think that the work navajo is doing with helping form the local groups, and larger efforts like Netroots Nation, have helped me especially remember that there are real people behind those bits and bytes on the monitor. Of course, another thing that helps is when people allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to share part of their Real Life with the community, whether it's a funny story about themselves, frustrations with life (WYFP) or mourning the death of a beloved pet or beloved spouse. That shared bit of humanity can keep us all grounded if we let it.
