A conversation about online love, digital intimacy and the future of dating followed a screening of PBS/POV film xoxosms. The short film follows the modern-day love story of Gus, a home-schooled Christian guy from small-town Illinois who takes a chance and Facebook messages Jiyun, a beautiful New York City art student from Korea. The two meet in the only place that such different people might ever find each other–online. Their two-year correspondence over email, iChat and Skype blooms into a long- distance relationship captured in instant messages and video-chat footage. When they decide to explore their romance offline, one wonders: Will online love work IRL (in real life)?
