Telecomaddict

Created by: CanadianAndyCapp

Pronunciation: Tell-eh-kom-add-ikt

Sentence: Such is the addictive and intrusive nature of the personal telecommunications explosion that it seems one cannot travel on public transit, walk in the street, sit in a park, visit a museum or art gallery without being assaulted by the jarring noise of someones cell phone or crackberry and the absolute insistence of the owner to immediately stop whatever they are doing to answer it. These telecomaddicts even get agitated or offensively angry if it is suggested they turn off these electronic devices and soon begin to exhibit classic symptoms that were previously associated with alchohol and drug withdrawal. Perhaps the story "Caves of Steel" is not so far fetched as it appeared when it was first published. THE LUDDITES WERE RIGHT!!!!!!

Etymology: Telecommunication- The subversive intrusion of electronic brainwashing and individual isolation through the disguise of increased freedom of communication. / Addict- The recipient of telecommunication
