Sad if they've died out - they were never present in significant enough
numbers to be a serious problem.  I last saw one in the late 90s, at The
Roaches in Staffordshire.
To talk about "the effects of technology" as if it is a single unitary thing is vague at best,
 and at worst is an approach that I have very often seen lead to Extreme Wooly Thinking,
 as so many different concepts and circumstances get lumped in together and jumbled
up in a big Conceptual Blender Of Meaninglessness that the end result winds up sounding like
Winnie The Pooh channelling James Joyce.                - Teal
