Connecting to other public nodes?

Please forgive if this is a silly question, but I complied eth, executed it and it's not doing much.

$ ./eth -o full -u [MY_PUBLIC_IP] -x 256 -l 30303 -v 9 -m on

<<< [ 0x10 ]
<<< [ 0x10 ]

And then I strace()'d it and it does only nanosleep():
nanosleep({0, 100000000}, NULL) = 0
nanosleep({0, 100000000}, NULL) = 0

Doesn't look like it's bootstrapping or connecting to other nodes, or mining...
Does ./eth need to connect up to another public existing node? Do public nodes exist? How to bootstrap it?
