Our presentation explored the ways in which we experience relationships within communities. We noted the effect the Five Senses have on our real life experiences, and posed the question of whether online communities could replace real life communities. We explored the various media available to stimulate the five senses, such as video and audio, but determined that while online communities can serve to enhance our real life communities, they cannot replace them. An emoticon can never replace a hug, but can certainly entice a smile when one is down. Dina Beaucage & 5 Senses Team
