Social Capital

I had a "I must blog this" moment tonight during class. We're discussing a Marxist theorist about different forms of, economic, cultural mainly. The discussion started as well with my professor contemplating why he never talked with acquaintances/friends from previous places where he lived & worked. Ultimately, he came to the conclusion that he no longer talks to these people because he doesn't need them. They don't enhance his social capital (like currency). Methinks I have an excuse for not keeping in touch with people? It's a bit harsh...but I guess it is what it is. Fair is fair; lots of people don't keep in touch with me either! :-)

Confucius say: "Have no friends not equal to yourself."
