That'll be why the view's so strange...

It used to be that what a writer did was type a bit and then stare out of the window a bit, type a bit, stare out of the window a bit.

Networked computers make these two activities converge, because now the thing you type on and the window you stare out of are the same thing.

Douglas Adams, quoted in Unask's Electric Text
