Can you hear him now?

After all, he apparently wants to be loud:

Him: Yeah, my goal is to be able to say I’m a vociferous reader.
Her: Great. Wait. Is it vociferous?
Him: Yeah, reads a lot.
Her: I think that’s voracious, right?
Him: Um … yeah … they’re like the same thing, right?
Her: I dunno. Let’s look it up on my smartphone.

God forbid I should ever own a phone smarter than I am. I couldn’t take it.

    The Smartest Man on the Web cannot have a phone brighter than he is. Not possible.

    I say this with no sarcasm, but with some jealousy!

    I’ll be sure to ask Jason Kottke what he’s schlepping around these days.

    I doubt that Mr. Kottke could out-do one CGH in a war of wits.

    Maybe he’s only sotto vociferous — he moves his lips when he reads.
