Score One For Ludd

So this summer my friend Jam gave me an addressbook from India. It's a very nice piece to look at, what with its striking orange cover and handmade paper. But this is 2005, everyone has email addresses in their email accounts, and phone numbers in their cell phones, so what need is there for such an antiquated technology? Well, upon considering the matter, I think that there's still room for a physical address book in my life. All the other addresses I have are scattered, a phone number here, an email there... And besides, once any given device among these actually breaks, you're stuck. Where are all your addresses? Gone. So you know what, a real, corporeal address book is still something I think I can use. Thanks again for the gift, Jam.
