Digital becomes ever so chic once more

Flickr, Twitter, Huffington Post have always been betrayed as glamorous and funky. But now even their remote ancestors, programming, gain equal status.
  1. Vanity Fair's An Oral History of the Internet - How the Web Was Won in its July issue - packets, browsers and protocols given the full VF treatment.
  2. Then BBC1's Fiona Bruce interviews Microsoft's Bill Gates for prime time television with Bill Gates: How a Geek Changed the World. Amazing anecdotes and a reenactment of the famous 1978 photo of all early founders.

Are we seeing the end of technophobia? Will it be as chic to know your hyperlinks from your widgets as knowing whether to be a part of LinkedIn rather than Facebook?
