Nate is one of my dearest friends– but I am cut off from knowing anything personally, because of the imbalance of individualism that sweeps our Western society, fed by technology and “social media” that seems to isolate people more than it does to bring them together.

Nate was always a homebody– the article neglects to mention he is the eldest of a family of 12.  The rule of thumb was always if I wanted to spend time with him, I needed to spend time with his family.  But neither the in-laws nor the eldest three children remember me, although I have met them all.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.
