The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!

I feel like Steve Martin in that scene from 'The Jerk' where he runs around his house shouting "The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!"

Nobody will admit it, but back when phone books were the way to find a phone number or address, one could experience a tiny thrill of seeing proof that 'I exist' just from seeing one's name and personal details published for all the world (or at least the surrounding county) to see.

If you don't agree, please take the following one question test:

1.  Have you ever 'Googled' your own name in order to see where / how many times you are mentioned on the Web?

'Nuff said.

Anyway, late last night I noticed that the program (excuse me, programme) of speakers for the Limmud Conference had just been published on line, and I naturally had to click straight to the 'B's to confirm my existence.

I'm such a child.

You're there alright. Limmud in the UK seems to be a huge event.

That's very cool, David. It's amazing to me how that annoying boy I grew up with has become such an influential and entertaining man.

I'm very proud of you.
