I don't think it's rational to dedicate your future
to anything if you are not yet sure.

As for the current environment being devoted to science -
due to science being much about sharing knowledge, the
"science monks" better get used to seminars, visits of
colleagues, conferences, students, sysadmins, Web
publishing, - and not losing touch with the social reality.

With all this said, a community of devoted researchers
sharing living arrangements may be an interesting idea.
It can be partly found in isolated research labs,
biological/ethnographic expeditions, etc.

Not sure if computer scientists would like to live in close
