This is VERY clever. I heard something on the radio not that long ago about the way we experience things differently now because of FaceBook and cameras and so on. We don’t experience things now: we photograph them, even just in our mind’s eye (but more often literally) because we’re thinking about how this will have been a great night out or a great party or a crisis we survived at amazing odds…
A Mad Magazine piece had a man asking his neighbor, “How was your vacation? The reply was, “I don’t know. I haven’t gotten my photos back, yet.”

Thank you. I posted an excerpt from the book at http://master-dave.livejournal.com/47644.html, along with a link to where used copies of the book can be purchased from independent bookshops. DJB was one of those few who put real work into what he did.
