#398 – Office Complex

a vision of doing business on the world wide web.

No doubt the Internet is a wonder; but to my mind it often resembles, more than a global village, a vast business office, where the whole world, isolated in its cubicles and literally sitting on its ass, is communicating with itself through inter-office memos, bulletin boards, and ring-binders.
