I think you've hit the nail on the head of WHY the online world is a bad thing...

But by the same token, it is good because it gives people a perspective they might not otherwise have been able to get. Most people in the US never travel outside our borders. It gives people more of a rounded "Wow, I really am part of a larger world than Footrash, Arkansas." Especially when you include voice communications with it(note: I don't know if they are including voice, but it might be a good idea).
