Apathy Jack writes:

For anyone who wonders why this place has been so quiet of late, I present the words of Jon Ronson:

"The internet gives us the illusion that we're wonderfully gregarious people. When we type away in discussion boards and post comments on one another's blogs it feels like we're sitting outside a pub in the evening sunshine with our attractive, cool friends. But we aren't. That's something we used to do before we got addicted to the Internet. What we do instead is perform some empty, unsatisfying facsimile of that. We sit alone in our rooms, becoming more and more isolated from society."

I'll be back shortly, after I've finished hanging out with the real people...
