More thoughts on reading Friedrich's book: has it occurred to anyone else
that Gould -- with his deep in the night phone calls lasting hours, his
desire for a kind of companionship which would leave his privacy intact --
would have *loved* the Net, especially email? Or do you think he was
attracted to the phone specifically because of its vocal nature; the fact
that you can, as he often did, use it to sing down, extemporise,
impersonate, edit, even, when the need arose, play music down it?

"There's quite a bit of piano-playing going on there -- and I mean that
as the most derogatory comment possible."             -- Gould on Gould
