A lot of people use my favorite coffee shop, Flight Path, as their office away from home, as it were. They bring their WiFi-enabled laptops, their cellphones, etc, and set up shop (one guy brings a vase of flowers, even). Many people plug their headphones into their laptops to zone out to whatever they have cued up on winamp or iTunes.
Today, I noticed one such cyberdude, his sculptural little clip-on headphones in place, rattling away on his keyboard. His phone starts ringing. He can’t hear it.

I love Flight Path, and I do use my laptop there from time-to-time, but I think it’s highly entertaining to watch the people go into their own little world…
A vase of flowers?! I assume it’s Internet-capable.
