Interesting scenerio for the future. But I prefer the sound of the real world.

I'd like to suggest an alternative to the insular, virtual reality world you've envisioned: I call it Actual Reality™. That's where you bike to the coffee shop and listen to the birds singing and the sound of your neighborhood. You go to work and have a conversation with a co-worker. On the way home you pass some kids rehearsing their band in the garage; later you attend a party with your friends who are all in the same actual space, interacting to each other rather than some digital construct. I leave to your imagination what happens between you and the actractive fellow human. But believe me, it'll be better in the flesh.

Sound like fun?

As Pete said, "Eleven hours in a tin can–there's got to be a better way!"

Actual Reality™ - get out in the world today! (Yes, the trademark is a joke. Sadly, the concept seems to be as well.)
