“We’re fighting against this whole idea that everything people do has to be constantly chronicled. People think that every thought they have, every experience — if it is not captured, it is lost…When it’s off the record, you actually listen to the conversation, not just wait for your turn to speak.”

— Michael Maline in a New York Times article about the rise of offline parties, where guests are not allowed to blog, Tweet, or take pictures of the event. It seems that talking about it is even discouraged. Perhaps ‘offline’ really can exist.
