By the time you read this, the telephone as such (as opposed to the MOBILE) will be an amusing irrelevance and anachronism. This section of the database celebrates the the massive presence of this Buddha once in your lounge and office, a fat and compliant confidante.
It celebrates the illustrative achievements of James Bingham who mastered the art of coloured wiring in spools and layers.
It reminds you of the dangerous Theatre of the Phone Booth, also an anachronism.
Instead of walking briskly with your fingers in your ear, it reminds you how once you relaxed to communicate.
