Missed Connections?

Post by JasonFL » Wed Sep 04, 2013 12:41 pm

Is there a place on ePlaya to post "Missed Connections"? So many people come in and out of your life during the week of Burning Man, and rarely does Defaultia info exchange. Sometimes one might not even know how significant they were to another's burn through a random conversation, stray glance, or a shared goal.

If this doesn't exist already, can we have a place for this? I'd love a place for people to express what their missed connections meant to them, or maybe even find that connection again.

It's in the 2013 Lost & Found. See "Lost Humans".

But what if the human really isn't lost, we met them and even know their name, yet feel that that a further connection is missing?
Where can I post that.....Savannah?

I think that must be what LinkedIn is for--disconnected connections.
