Food intrinsically connects us to people, culture, and our identity--at least, this is how it used to be. The onset of industrial agriculture has quickly shifted food practices, from production to consumption, under a veil of corporate bureaucracy and economically-driven business models. Since then, there has been a growing counter-movement to preserve these rich connections through different farm-to-table type programs. Not all industrialization is bad, however. Digital mediums such as blogs and Twitter are also beneficial. The social web can be thought of as a virtual dining room by which we could extend and foster new connections with people from within our communities and around the world.
