35 - Tijdeverlies - de cybertoog

Vrijdagnacht zat ik wat Technie sites te lezen, wachtend op een telefoon. ICQ, een IM (Immediate Messenger), stond bij uitzondering aan. Ineens komt er uit het ijle een boodschap binnen.
De log van deze ruim 2 uur conversatie is authentiek, alleen zijn de nicknames om privacy-redenen gewijzigd. De lange onderbrekingen zijn te wijten aan het feit dat we beiden voornamelijk met andere dingen bezig waren.
Zoals elke café-toog conversatie met een volslagen vreemde heeft ook deze tsjet (chat) een hoog absurditeitsgehalte. Het voorzichtig aftasten van mekaars interesses, een scheut amateur-filosofie, godsdienst, vaak erg persoonlijke onthullingen waar je niks mee bent, Hitler en de Nazi's komen er ook bij de pas, en blijkbaar het obligate geflirt.
Is dit het Net in 2003? Wie heeft er nog TV nodig, Familie en Thuis? Zie ook de grappige History of the Net hier.
Hieronder enkele uittreksels, de volledige log vind je
