The Chatophobe ADRIFT
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (0)

My interactive fiction Wax Worx won the "Most unusal ADRIFT setting/plot" category in the InsideAdrift Awards 2004! I even got a certificate.

I'm kicking myself because I missed my chance to receive the award "in person" at the online ceremony due to my chatophobia. That's right, I have a morbid fear of chatrooms.

To be honest, most internet communication makes me uneasy. E-mails are OK, since they're like letters, but chatrooms, bulletin boards, usenet (let alone things like instant messaging)-- yes even blogs -- send chills down my spine.

I think it is because they remind me of the telephone, and who amongst us isn't terrified of those disembodied encounters over that infernal device?

Now that I think about it, at our house, the internet comes through the telephone wire.

I wonder, would my insurance cover a prescription for DSL?
