Description: Insightful Observation on the Internet
Bruce Sterling, science fiction writer, comparing the Internet favorably 
with television.
   "I actually think that television bears a much, much heavier blame 
(for a sense of isolation) than the Internet.  On the Internet, people 
are talking to other individuals.  With television, you've got an entire 
population narcotized by emanations from a central command point.  ...The 
Internet is like a bunch of zombies with salt in their mouths and their 
lips sewn shut actually rising from the grave, vaguely sort of patting 
one another. ...I think it's actually something of a positive development."
