not the only tech-angry blogger...

Kottke apparently shares some of my vitriol, although his is primarily directed at a "city walking" crowd:

I imagine that there is a doctoral thesis out there on how all of our technological advances in "connectedness" also create the possibility of greater isolation and loneliness.  And on a completely unrelated point, I seem to recall from my Greek classes that the word "idiot" comes from the Greek, with an original meaning approximate to "a private person; one living "in his own little world"'
