Thanks.  It would have been in #nottor .  Very sad for me, the lack of a
log.  The interaction had links to a lot of things I have lost memories of
that seem very important, and feel very responsible for.  I know when I
used to spend time active on irc, I would always keep automatic channel
logs, myself.  It seemed like a common thing to do.

Which would be pointedly producing uninhibited increased interaction
complexity, or something.

Thanks for your reference to the complex, meaningful and directly relevant,
hard-to-follow animatrix episode.  I saw it when it came out, but don't
remember it much.  The wild learning robot is tricked onto the empty stage
and separates from "embarrassment".  I found a scene of interconnection
like you described but didn't keep hold of it.  Hopefully I watch the whole
thing again.
