The Blackberry messaging network is down. So have mercy — or at least pity — on any twitchy exec you see for the next few days. It’s hell being off the grid.
You know the Blackberry — the pager-sized device with a thumb-operated keyboard that lets you send e-mails wirelessly. Al Gore wears (or wore) one; he apparently got word to hold of on conceding the 2000 election as he was on his way to give his concession speech.
I’ve got one that I don’t use, because I decided that I don’t need to get my spam quite that quickly.
