Robert Scoble made me laugh out loud today:

"Tim O’Reilly is sitting next to me. For the past hour he was typing furiously. So, I just visited his blog to read what he was writing."

It reminds me of story I was told last week.  Someone (not from my workplace) was complaining about how somebody sitting behind them at work had *actually* decided to send an email instead of just turning around and talking to them.

I didn't say anything.  I just pretended to look busy (with my Smartphone, answering a text message). I think they'd be horrified at the fact that my wife and IM each other from across the table at home. Now, before you kindly offer some marriage guidance, I should stress this is not our only means of communication. We use email too.
