Selective use of technology---The Endeavour

From John Cook:

In his book The Nine, Jeffrey Toobin gives a few details of Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s decidedly low-tech life. Souter has no cell phone or voice mail. He does not use email. He was given a television once but never turned it on. He moves his chair around his office throughout the day so he can read by natural light. Toobin says Souter lives something like an eighteenth century gentleman.

Sure, maybe it sounds romantic, but it’s also probably indicative of how little the legal profession, especially judges and justices, understands and is willing to understand technology.
