Lions Roar : March 2010
47 SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2010 oN NovEMbER 2, 1994, I got the most important email of my life. Its author was a young scientist who had read something on the internet about an article I’d written for Wired magazine. He wanted to know if I was also the guy who reviewed Grateful Dead shows for an online community called the Well. I was. A few more emails and phone calls later, I met my correspondent in person at a brewpub in berkeley. He turned out to be a shy, bright, handsome grad student at the university of California named Keith. Neither of us drink much, so we headed out to an old- fashioned soda fountain called Edy’s to share a banana split. Fifteen years later, Edy’s is gone, but Keith and I are still together, having taken a vow to love, honor, and cherish one another till death do us part. Several of my closest friendships began with an email. My role model in science media, Robert Krulwich of National Public Radio’s “Radiolab,” introduced himself one day by forwarding a mes- sage from Jonah Lehrer, another gifted science writer. Last summer, a young poet from ontario, Eric Cunliffe, stayed at our house on his first visit to San Francisco after befriending me on Face- book. Each of these relationships began with a fragile seed of connection—a shared interest, auspicious coincidence, or click on a link—that found purchase in our hearts and grew.
