Hundreds and hundreds of old notebooks. What to do with them? One of the ones at the top is from a 1997 story: “The Tyranny of Email.” This crazy new office tool was going to drive us all insane! It also has pages of notes about changing the market basket of goods for the CPI, with a phone number for a young MIT Professor Paul Krugman. And a note from Light in August which I must have been reading at the time.
