The next time you jack an MP3 player into your skull to shut out the world, or the next time you can't put down that solitaire game, or the next time you talk in the food court on your cell phone rather than the person who is sitting with you or serving you lunch… The next time you pay more attention to your e-mail than to your children, the next time you feel uneasy when your connections are interuppted, the next time the innermost recesses of your brain recognize a machine as part of you when it dies, remember this:
- You have crossed the line. For you, the revolution has already occured. The machines have not only changed you, they have become you. Not metaphically, but in a way as real and tangible as the keyboard and mouse you now clutch.
