Its just occurred to me that a typical day in the office of sitting at my desk and juggling simultaneous email conversations in 2015 feels remarkably similar to wasting time juggling chatroom or forum threads in ~2000. (Which is what we called "social networking" when we only knew who we were talking to by pseudonyms.)

It still doesn't feel like actually working. But now, it looks to the untrained observer something very much like "work".
