Having been exposed to more than just a little bit of ramb...er...wide variety of interests, there does seem to be a method to the madness. It's not lost or dissociated, just occasionally distracted. I see that as a good thing. If everyone was so totally focused on what was directly in front of them, things like art, music, stories, and other vitally human expressions would be so BORING. It's these little tracers and sparkles in the corners of our eyes that keep life interesting. *wonders if he ought to review his profile* :P … and I agree with Doreen.

Between six and ten, depending on the day. =D I think the people attracted to virtual worlds tend to be dedicated multi-taskers. And you don't ramble, Dusan---you have a wide variety of interests and experiences which are reflected in your writing style. ;) How many tabs do I have up?

Second Life is so vast, so interesting, and has so many distractions (Oooooo, sparklies! ... Ooooo, art! ... Ooooo, interactive content! ... etc.) that it is very easy to ramble - verbally, metaphorically, and actually. Also, um, virtually. Good luck! :-) I have been (half-heartedly, I admit) trying to focus for 2-1/2 years.

Like a robot arm, for example. Easy to get hypnotized by MediaLabSpeak... miss real words. :-) An “actuator” is a physical device controllable from the digital realm. Like a robot arm, for example.
