going nowhere at a billion bits an hour
Life lived at Net speed means sitting at a computer, our thoughts racing, our bodies unmoving. I call it "terminal inertia": the sensation, experienced daily by millions in our wired society, of overflying infinite landscapes of information while sitting still. In a sense, weve arrived in the future foretold by J.G. Ballard in his short story, "Memories of the Space Age."
