The Null Device
The net is closing around luddites and those not fond of those dreadful
new-fangled computers everybody's using these days. Now, it seems that
not even the traditional refuge of the pub is safe; a survey has found that
almost half of pub conversations
are about computers. Moreover, a quarter
of women would rather discuss computers than their family life, and a third
of dinner party conversations are about computers. Mind you, this is in the UK,
where computers were traditionally a status symbol for the upper strata of the
eviscerated neo-Thatcherite middle classes.
