York Street Station, Dumbo, Brooklyn.
Last stop before Manhattan. Vigilant eyes monitor the tunnel entrance. Sometimes.

I wrote a story for the NYT's Circuits section about some personal cell phone trauma that, as of this moment, is still continuing: 'Portable' Number, Just Out of Reach. I'm trying to get the number from my old Sprint phone transferred over to my new T-Mobile phone, a maneuver that became possible on Monday thanks to new rules. So far this exquisitely automated process has taken 2.5 days.

About the accompanying photo: Yes, my old phone really is that big and ugly. No, those are not my hands.
