Stella: We’ve become a race of Peeping Toms. What people ought to do is get outside their own house and look in for a change. Yes sir. How’s that for a bit of homespun philosophy?

Stella: Well, I only quote from the best.
Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, 1954
Yeah, I’m into Hitchcock right now. Been mulling over the amount of peeping that continues to increase as new socializing networks conquer the market (meanwhile that did not stop me from checking my Facebook account) and reality shows thrive… until one day when all houses have transparent walls and surrogates live our lives for us. Wait, that’s from Zamyatin’s We and some SF movie.
We live between quotation marks.
