“Computerized daily life risks assuming a form that certain ideologues find interesting and seductive: the individual atom or family molecule inside a bubble where the messages sent and received intersect. Users, who have lost the dignity of the citizen now that they figure socially only as parties to services, would thus lose the social itself, and sociability. This would no longer be the existential isolation of the old individual, but a solitude all the more profound for being overwhelmed by messages.”

— Henri Lefebvre, Critique of Everyday Life, 1981 (!!)
