I am an introverted software engineer and I love what I do and how I do it. People I physically meet usually think I'm asocial, tongue-tied or shy. The reasons I don't talk are usually because I don't have anything to say or you don't interest me (or worse). I spend most of my time in front of my computer doing things. Even lots of people from software engineering circles or usually subcircles , I meet physically do not interest me.
I have available techs like email, mailing lists, IRC and sites like github and stack exchange and even Google which directs me to many other sites where thoughts of people are available. You probably know only half of these and can use none of them effectively and you have no idea what this means if only thing you care about is facebook, instagram and minecraft .
With these techs I have available thousands of people at my fingertips, who I daily interact with  and a circle of people I interact with regularly. Often holding many conversation threads at the same time unless I'm currently immersed in part of the problem, that I need to figure out only myself.
That's my daily routine. What is Yours  ?
