Perhaps it is my young age, but all the people I know are effectively lepers if they're not, atleast, connected to the internet.

I was rash in assuming everyone was similar. Now that I think of it, there are older people that wouldn't miss a beat if they took time away from the internet.

Maybe being a bit of a leper wouldn't be too bad.
