Ever since the Internet evolved and became available to everyone living in at least moderately developed countries, the world became incredibly connected. Not only can we instantly receive news and information about people far away, but with the help of computers and the Internet we can also acquire resources and tools that can help us do things we never knew we could. For example, every mediocre computer user can make simple videos, record songs, create presentations, learn new languages through games, etc.
The problem with such connectedness and availability of so many different opportunities is in the fact that life became very fast and chaotic. The tempo of life sped up and people are trying to do too many things in a day that still only has 24 hours. And the consequence of such a hectic tempo of life is the difficulty of maintaining close relationships with people, because that requires time - something that we seem to have less and less.
The good news is that there are solutions to this problem as well. Skype is one obvious way that can bring people together via Internet even if they are physically far away. But there are tools that are not as direct as Skype. Tools that still have something of that old fashioned romance embedded in their code. And one such tool is Cherami Cards, a recently launched online cards maker. Its creators recognized the need of a modern man to slow down and reconnect with his loved ones, so they created a web app that helps people stay afloat in a fast-paced society such as ours.
