You (Plural)

"TIME chose you, and you alone, as its person of 2006. How perfectly American. We are Connoisseurs of Media. Blogmasters. iPodists. And, thanks to our PDAs, lords of creation: masters of the opposable thumb.

Solitary activities, all --- even when we're "interacting," we're in our little silos.

And yet we hunger for the human touch, community, authentic sharing.

It seems like eons ago, but I would suggest the last time we had that was on February 15, 2003, when between 8 and 30 million people joined in the planet's largest anti-war march.
How did that happen?
