Remember DotComGuy? He lived in his E-cave for a whole year as a promotional stunt to prove anyone could survive without leaving home as long as they had a laptop and a internet connection. Well he did survive and left the cave on January 1 stating he was taking a break from the net. But now he's back with a new website and a new fiancee he met in a chatroom during his virtual imprisonment.
Do we call still call it addiction or a way of life now?

DotComGuy leaves house; world fails to care. For those who weren't paying attention to this, The Story Of The Year, some schmuck renamed himself DotComGuy, moved into a house, and lived off e-tailers for an entire year to prove that the Internet helps commerce. Or something. The experiment proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, nothing.

DotCom Guy is a Bore "The DotCom Guy gets loads of publicity just like this for being a zero." - Dallas Observer. Dallas, where I live, has many claims to "fame" but I'm not sure anyone really cares about this one. Is the rest of the world paying attention to him?
