Skin meetings, snail mail, brick reality. Nice collection already a-gathering.
I tend to see "virtual reality" as of two different kinds, thus perhaps
needing two different contrasting terms. "Brick reality" is a better
opposite for the virtual reality that computer scientists work on -- the
kind like the tunnels in Crichton's _Disclosure_. The other kind of
virtual reality involves net life -- as opposed to ftf experiences.
Looks like non-electronic forms are becoming the marked ones.
True. At least among net surfers.
