It's better in the flesh

"The internet is like the wheel — a lot of work has become faster or more tolerable as a result of its invention. People, once with a bicycle and now with Guardian Soulmates, can look further afield for sex, and in the long term this will probably be a boon to genetic diversity. But cyberspace hasn't changed our natures, any more than transport did. Meaningful communities are still small in scale, built on time, effort and contact. Gangs of 200 people saying hello to each other are just so much landscape." —Zoe Williams
