Remember this discussion of the Lykov hermits, a couple of months ago?

Guess what: the Sibirsky crew was leading the way in cultural exploration, with general media following only now.

I just opened my copy of "The Week", which arrived today. What do I see: a feature article on the Lykovs!

It seems it is the same article that was mentioned by redroom. Old-hat news for the readers of this thread.
