'...All of this feeds into the perception that techies are, according to the former Facebooker, “pod people” who aren’t part of the community. -- “You wake up, get the shuttle bus, go to the bubble of campus and order food via an app when you get home. You are not a citizen, just a bizarre leech who makes money,” he explained.' -- Cover the window, please. These mountains give me no ideas. ~ The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster (1909)
