The Project

By taking the time to read this you’re becoming part of an unique book writing project that explores how our relationships have evolved, the powerful psychology behind online relationships, and how to survive in the virtual jungle.

The Internet has affected every aspect of our lives. Perhaps the most profound change has been the way we connect with people.

The Internet can help you find true love - or it can be an avenue of temptation to cheat on your other half.

It can open new communities for those isolated by age, infirmity, disability, illness or prejudice - or it can alienate you from the real people in the next room

By collecting and sharing real stories from real people around the globe, we’ll tap into the wave together and learn how the Internet has changed old worlds for some and opened completely new worlds for others.


The Team

We are a team of six writers from the Philadelphia area, all from different walks of life, thrown together by Jonathan Maberry, award winning author of the new thriller Ghost Road Blues.  We’re writing Social Tsunami: Real Stories of  Riding the Internet Wave, a book on the subjects of love, sex, relationships, dating, business and community as they relate to the Internet.  But we’re not writing it alone.

Riding the Internet wave to find the very stories that define it, Cyber Connections Cafe is the forum where we collect, share and discover what drives this Social Tsunami.

The Stories


How has access to the Internet changed the way you date, find friends, business partners, sex, or reach like-minded people across the street and across the globe for support and understanding?

Do you know someone who found the medical miracle they needed for their child or the soul mate they’d always been searching for?

We’re interested in your personal experiences and those of anyone you’d care to invite to contribute.

Funny, sad, scary, weird, hopeful and miraculous - together we’ll see it all.

Stop back often to enter contests, check on our progress, and listen to us vent. We will keep you up to date as we progress closer to final publication. Feel free to provide links to your own site or blog. We’d love to help others build their buzz.

Thanks for taking the time. Now tell us your story!

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will change any names, dates or places that you might mention in your stories before making them part of the project.  This is not intended to be a forum for lashing out or hurting anyone.  While some of the tales may have racy content, please exercise good judgment in your contribution.
