On this week's Books & Beyond, we have Phil Scopes, the man I've dubbed the Mayor of Philmore. As some of you may know, Philmore is a voice mail system where people can leave messages for each other and form message groups on various topics. We will discuss the merits of systems like this as well as the history of Philmore and Net By Phone, his other company that provided email and web access by phone.
