As more people give credence to online spaces, it is naive to say that certain features of third places can’t be brought online and potentially work even better than in the real world. For instance, anonymity on the Internet encourages genuine self-expression and is a true leveler. Relationships can be formed on deeper non-superficial bases by helping people with shared values and interests meet, and these great relationships started online are oftentimes brought into the real world¹. Spots that offer a “home away from home” that have been designed for informal and spontaneous interactions can be successfully built online⁹.

That experience just cannot be replicated with current technology. And maybe it never will be.
