I'm not a social animal. or am I?

[back from 3 weeks of lovely analog holidays, hence the lack of recent posts ]

I never felt attracted to social software like IRC (chat) and more recently Friendster, Orkut and its ilk. I'd rather speak to an analog person than with someone while bashing on my keyboard. Besides, this new flood of social thingies seems to overwhelm you with loads of friends, friends-of-a-friend, and friends-of-a-friend-of-a-friend. This way, George W. Bush is probably even a friend of mine :( Furthermore, I rather read than type / comminucate in the digital world. And dial-up connection rules out a lot of possibilities to explore.
