Description

This article is from the Kurt Vonnegut FAQ, by George A Cooley geocool@blarg.net with numerous contributions by others.

4. Is Kurt Vonnegut on the net? Does he read this newsgroup?

Perhaps in keeping with his take on technology as presented in "Player
Piano" and others of his novels, Kurt doesn't seem to be at all into
"this internet thing." Not completely unexpected, really. Thanks
to our own John Dinsmore, though, he has read this FAQ (version 2.0,) and
had this to say about it, in a letter dated Nov 5, 1995:

"The internet stuff is spooky. I am of course not on line.
I do remember ham radio operators though, usually in attics or
basements, pallid, unsociable, and obsessed, inhabiting a
spirit world, and harmless."

Way off. Doesn't sound like me at all. Nope. Nuh-uh. No way.
My computer is in a room on the *ground floor*, thank you very much!
