Watch Our 21-Year-Old Intern Struggle to Find a Number in a Phone Book
Yellowbook recently distributed their Tuscaloosa area book to residents. I found mine in a plastic bag on my driveway. Kimberly did too. She said her 17 year old had no idea what it even was. We did an experiment on air today with our 21 year old intern, Eleni. She told us this morning she had never used a phonebook.
Do the math. Eleni was born in 1995 and had NEVER used a phone book! We went live on Facebook to give her a quick quiz. We asked her to find Celebrations Bakery's number. How long did it take her? Longer than you may think.
In contrast, I used the voice feature on my phone. I simply said "Call Celebrations Bakery". Within 4 seconds the number was ringing. I love technology.
