Also unusual, apparently Utah is the U.S. state with the most computers per person (Alaska is right behind). I might guess that there's little else to do in Utah. Related, in a conversation I had yesterday on social alienation caused by modern technology, and that possibly leading to trolls like Usenet saw (because of lack of physical cues), another possibility occurred to me -- that perhaps it's just transitioning adults that suffer this, and people raised on the "new way of communicating" from birth may not suffer at all from it.
Right now I'm on a rare trip to the Beehive. It's a nice place to hang out -- it's just inconvenient to get here. Over the next while, keep an eye on the philosophy section of my website -- I'm restating my reformulated, rejuvinated ideas, and I think they're coming out a lot better than they did before.
