Hi Dave,
Love your video. I love the fact that we don’t need to look serious to be serious about our work.
Now, when it comes to hugging someone online, I know it’s physically NOT possible, though virtual hugs can be powerful sometimes. I blogged about that day I managed to hug my student online. That day a story called “A storm of pink petals” which I wrote with a friend, felt like a deep and needed hug to both of us. Just in case someone out there needs a virtual hug: http://datenglish.blogspot.com.ar/2013/07/the-day-i-managed-to-hug-my-student.html
