Yes, I think so.

For all its vaunted connectivity, the internet leaves people less truly connected than ever before.

Playing checkers at the general store has more social interaction and imo generates more relational connectivity than the internet is capable of doing.
We become like that to which we are devoted. Choose wisely.

Ta Da! You win the prize. Real social interaction has real impact on real human lives, while posting on any internet forum probably has no real impact on real human lives, with some exceptions.

Actually, looking back on my days of going into the gas station and playing crib with old timers was really some great times. I got much more from them than they got from me. I was only 16 at the time. Learned a lot of wisdom from the old boys!

That's very cool! I'm glad they still have the equivalent. Certain things never lose their meaning.
