Sans Electronic Gear

Recently my car was broken into and my briefcase (with laptop, Palm Pilot and some important files) was stolen. This is every knowledge worker's nightmare, and let me tell you that it's bad. Luckily, I was reasonably backed up. But even then, there are things you don't think about. For example, my PDA was backed up to the PC and vice versa. My email was not backed up for a month. So, I am calling people asking them for their email address.

Anyway, I am working through all of that, but it makes you yearn a bit for the good old days of Rolodexs and notebooks. Of course, I've left plenty of calendars and paper organizers on airplanes too. But that's another story.

As they used to say on Hill Street Blues. Be careful out there!
