The last person on my cell phone wanted to discuss something I had written on my blog. The one before that on my telephone wanted to know if I had read her email. While I was looking for the email, my daughter sent me a text message. I missed the text, because my Blackberry was under a pile of reports on my desk.

I know that I have more information on more subjects in more media in front of me today than I did when I first became mayor eight years ago. I suspect that I have more information in front of me to help me do my job well than any mayor in the City’s history — despite the fact that large quantities of paper and other sorts of information pass directly to my staff.

It is a daunting thought — and possibly worth a Tweet.
