All these people who make a living fretting about the Net don't get it,
especially Jaron Lanier with his hysteria over "digital Maoism".
I had been exchanging pleasantries today with John P. Davidson, the
author of the new novel about the Trotsky assassination, when out of the
blue Clancy Sigal emailed me asking for a good quote on WWI and
Zimmerwald. Clancy, you may know, wrote the screenplay for the biopic
about Frida Kahlo that I did not care for very much. When he read it, he
took that up with me and we've stayed in touch over the years after I
proffered my apology.
Can you imagine what a job it would be to find the snail mail addresses
of such people 30 years ago and then to sit down at a typewriter to bang
out a letter?
These architects of doom and gloom just don't get it.
