    Telecommuting blues?

    I can't help but being surprised by this guy's question to Slashdot:
    but I'm finding myself rather starved for human interaction. Being in the same apartment to sleep, eat, AND work every day definitely leads to cabin fever. Have other people experienced this? What have you done to deal with the situation? Does dividing working/living spaces help (my apartment's small, anyway...)? I know of a few folks who have actually rented office space just to get out of the house. Is the cost worth it?

    He probably missed all the classes of Getting a Life 101. Plus, he was born in a bubble or something. I'll try to help him here. There's a thing called (quote) friends (endquote), who you sometimes meet in places called (quote) bars (endquote) and drink some yellowish and frothy stuff called (quote) beer (endquote). As a home assignment, write an essay on "The street as a place for social interaction, and how to get there".

    Suggest a FlashMob called BeerMob or FlashBeer, where people stay afterwards. It's such a shock to actually meet people! Or so I've been told. ;-)

    Another idea is to have cyberoffices, so that you're forced to actually have a shower, dress up and - ohmygod! - walk to the other place.

    This idea is being worked with at Minciu Sodas (soon to have a full grown "Spanish wing", sooner if you help), as a way to "grow villages instead of megacities".

    And learn that people have a real name behind their nick!
