The announcement that the Yellow Pages was to fully digitise by the end of this year passed me by, so the 'Final Edition' dropping off through my letterbox was a surprise. I'm amazed it's kept going in printed form for so long to be honest. I've never really seen the point in it, but then I have grown up in the internet age so have been spoiled for readily available information. One of the earliest memories of advertising I have is of the wee boy standing on a stack of them to kiss a girl under mistletoe. That wouldn't work with it's slimline A5 format and definitely not with a stack of digital devices. My vaguely nostalgic ramble doesn't really have a point, other than it's pretty incredible how much communication has changed, particularly in the last 15 to 20 years. A lot of it has been great, some bad, some pleasingly daft (Habbo Hotel anyone?) and it's impossible to know where we'll end up, but it won't be with gigantic books full of phone numbers, probably.
