I am happy to announce that the documentary "When Strangers Click" has been nominated for an Emmy in the category "New Approaches to News and Documentary Programming"! Directed by Robert Kenner, director of "Food Inc," the film explores how people are connecting with each other on the Internet, whether it be on a dating site, a message board or a virtual world.
I am proud of my involvement as a consultant on this documentary, helping wrangle some of the love stories that were considered for use in the film and advising the director about how to think about virtual worlds. I hope it wins, which it totally deserves.
