Don't apologize Michael....

i never identify with tech articles, they're always written from the point of view of middle class urban people (who are totally great! i have nothing against them Smile). rarely do i see articles about what the internet is to bazillions of rural people, or poor people who access it from a library or pirated connection...or people from certain populations that need a safe way to find each other.

That's because there's a kind of desperation on many peoples parts to be more 'in' than the 'in' are X-D Sleek fashionistas, lazy trustafarians, psuedo-literati's, elitist bullshitters...all bobbing and sweaty to get past each other to the center of some thing X-D Cities attract this... Anyway...when this happens there's an assumption on all their parts that everyone else openly or secretly feels the same and wants the same things...'the poor' or 'the rural' are embarassing to them and the image of an old farmer with an iPod is too insulting a thing to think about X-D

Personally, I think the idea of a guy on a junker bicycle riding past llamas with an iPhone is far more interesting than some "Gucci little piggy" ( thank you Thom Yorke ) with one.

It's hot outside...

Really? Wow.
