Private spaces

I think I might agree with Andrew Sullivan. To some degree, anyway; when I take a long trip I always whip out the headphones, but that's once I'm ensconsed on the plane/bus. It's just too much hassle to get things rigged up every time I'm walking somewhere for ten minutes.

I am glad Sullivan notes in passing some of the good things about this sort of phenomenon (and glad he extends his point to more than just the iPod), and think ultimately the answer is in balance. Of course. I always say that, don't I?
