Live from Bullwinkle Plaza: there is a line in my globalization lecture that I am going to have to take out.

Hitherto, when talking about how connected the world is, I hold up my cell phone and say: "The number of this phone is on my CV, and any phone number in the world can call it and I will answer--that is, I will answer it once, and more if I find you interesting enough."

Because of cellphone spam--"Your business has been approved for a loan of $250,000!"--that is no longer true...
