Actually, I suppose I mean iconography.

When was the last time you saw a phone company logo that actually looked 
like a telephone?  Now they're either scenic arcs (like they want to 
span things) or they're globes (like they want to rule the world).  Or 
both!  I think it's part of a world domination plot.  You'll be glad to 
know, I've already published my conspiracy theory at 
http://www.eilertech.com/domination/blog8.htm#20feb2007 .

I should mention, after I published that theory I went (back) to work 
for one of those phone companies.  A Code of Business Conduct now 
requires me to say, my opinion is not necessarily that of my sponsors.  8{D>

... Anyway, it's refreshing to see the enemies of the New Prometheus 
wearing telephone logos.

south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
