There's nothing snipped for the quote.

I'm sorry, now I'm aware that it's much blah blah I've written.

However, allow me to add this last note ;) to the list, because there's
much discussion about the costs and about technical reasons.

The very serious thing about landline vs cell phone is the social

Humans need the possibility to retreat.

In the past a worker wasn't available 24/7, resp. those people were not
called workers, but slaves.

In the past it was allowed to take a rest of the world, including

knowledge? Who cares about truth? We need more scripted reality and
doomsday hype, don't we?

No Twitter link on a Linux homepage IMO is a good thing.

Perhaps I should twitter my thoughts ;).
