Cyber Drifters

Posted in Blog, Technology

The BBC reports on a cyber cafe outside Tokyo that has a dark room divided into tiny cubicles where 60 people “who rarely emerge” live. These folks are called cyber drifters and “they have just enough money to stay off the streets.” It costs $500 a month to live in one of these “coffin-size booths,” which have no natural light or fresh air. “In Tokyo it doesn’t get any cheaper than that, or more claustrophobic.” The owner of the cyber cafe is making a tidy sum off the rent: 60 X $500 = $30,000
