Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

The original version of this image was created in October 2006, using volumes 25cm high and 5cm thick (some 400 leaves), each page having two columns, each columns having 80 rows, and each row having 50 characters, ≈ 6MB per volume.

“ THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF TALKING ARE IN THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT. THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF LISTENING ARE IN THE RESEARCH OR SERVICE OR SALES DEPARTMENT. THEY HARDLY EVER TALK TO EACH OTHER, LET ALONE HAVE FULL-DUPLEX CONVERSATIONS WITH CUSTOMERS.”
