We realize the participants in our What I Read series sometimes come across as overly-set in their media consuming routines. This is our fault, probably. Our questionnaire isn't set up to account for time spent talking to living, breathing, non-tweeting humans. What we're trying to say is: yes, Isolde Marion, Mark Armstrong does talk to people more than twice a day. We think.

My god. So the only time the writer speaks to other humans is between coffee and 10 minutes of Sesame Street. I can't help but think of Wall-E and all the blobby humans roaming around with screens in front of their faces.

Thanks for reading, everyone. And be sure to check out Open Wire, where you can share links, feedback, and opinions on the stories you think we should be covering.
