Inffinite interactivity can only be found in "the flesh". With that said, nothing could ever replace a conversation with some chums at a show or party. I was teaching in China and Japan and the "hermit age" is present over there more than anywhere (almost matrix like where everyone is plugged in) and we are still far from an international army of goulish nerds.
You have to keep in mind that the mojority of the population on our planet doesn't need or use the information highway in they're day to day life. The internet will be present as long as there isn't nuclear or chem warfare. But that doesn't mean it's where everyones at or even wants to be. As long as MMOG's are lame, boring, and unclimactic we can expect people to still go swimming and play instruments and get laid.
If you've ever played CS, you might notice the average age of the competion. It's because after spending most of your life on a computer you realize that a level 60 character, an FX-62, or a quad GPU laptop isn't going to bring you inner peace.
This is a very well written article. The only sentence I sorta dissagree with is: "Spending too much time in World Of Warcraft is no different to spending all day fishing, or on the golf course, or working on your car or a million other distractions where a person can relax and do their own thing." People need sunlight and physical activity to some extent, hobby or not. I don't really consider golf, fishing, or mechanics sports but then again some amount of athleticism and physical cooridination is involved.
I love computers and online games, but they can only give me so much. I'm twenty years old but all I want is to a wife and kids and a teaching position at a university and I'm almost there. I'll always play video games, but never again will I depend on them for satisfaction.
