Best Comment On Yesterday's Blackberry Blackout

Yesterday's Blackberry Blackout affected me not at all. Of course, I have expressed my disdain for being constantly plugged in on several occassions. So it should come as no surprise that I greatly enjoyed Long or Short's perspective on the whole event:

Long or Short Capital: RIMM Jobbed

If this continues, Blackberry users worldwide will be unable to:

  • affect the veneer of importance in public

  • take time off from vacation to stay addicted to work

  • ignore unwanted conversations at work-related social functions

  • pay complete inattention during investment meetings

  • achieve new high scores in Brickbreaker [ed note: 24k, bitches!]

  • ignore their girlfriends in the name of “last-minute requests from the PM”

I read an article somewhere (I did so - trust me!) that suggested the new power elite would unplug themselves by requiring that their underlings remain connected for them. Shades of the Mentat/advisors from Frank Herbert's "Dune".

The lesson here is that the perpetually wired are merely training themselves to be the indentured lackeys of the new economy overlords.

'Nuff said!
