Did you think I was lonely? is a small work of conceptual net-art. The piece consists of a website which displays a list of IP addresses collected from the previous 16 visitors. Because the list includes the visitor’s own address, every viewer of the site is presented with a unique set of IPs.

This work engages with concepts such as the responsibility of a website owner to keep visitor information private, and the vulnerability one experiences when browsing the web. DYTIWL? derives its name from the tongue-in-cheek idea that a server will never feel lonely because visitors across the world are always keeping it company.
