A repository for institutional knowledge about (presumably) fictional internet personality ELLEN BARSHEVSKY
I don't understand the problem with the blackberry. In many circles, having a blackberry is a status symbol bestowed upon many a person who really doesn't even need one. At least Ellen does not appear to be status-conscious. That's a plus in a city full of petty jerks!
In my firm we are required to carry our BBs 24/7 in case we are needed. It is no status symbol, more like a yoke.
The new guy will surely want to hump Ellen?
