… we are indeed.

We authors tend to think that each of our houses is, if not unique, at least unlike the others we can see in the neighbourhood. Whether made of clay and wattles or ray-traced on a computer screen, we think of our huts as distinctively crafted. It is a shock, an affront, to think we might be living in modular housing. But in an increasingly collaborative, technological mediascape, we are indeed.
