nice article kna. you talk about not being able to escape from communication, and it's true that many people find it difficult to just ignore the phone, turn off the mobile etc. I'd really like to see a version of the selective invisibility you can have with MSN etc - i.e. only certain people can see that you're available. this kinda brings me onto my worries about mobile-IM spam - it's bound to happen, unless the country/planet makes the neccessary effort to prevent it in both legal and physical terms.
