Put your hands on your computer folks and feel the warmth of Dharma comin to ya!
So then the practical issue of making the connections between Dharma teachers and Dharma students all over the world.
Maybe a "new" DW can have a multiplicity of vetted chat rooms where teachers and students, or students and students, can get together and study and practice.
Maybe there can be a permanent thread on DW that posts on-line interactive, and non-interactive, teaching offerings.
Maybe there can be a 501C3 charitable NGO, to collect (as permitted) all of the recordings of the on-line teachings and make them available, for free, on the web.
Maybe there can be a world peace protector practice, handed off to different time zones, to keep it going 24/7.
Maybe there can be a Dharma Dewey Decimal System and hyperlinked, multi media, and multi dimensional data base of all teachers, lineages, spiritual transmissions and practices (and scanned in print media) to enable easy access to Dharma sources for seekers.
Here are 3 old ads from the DC. I think you could write to the references and see what is coming up.
