I'm sorry this posting doesn't contribute specifically to how "SQL" is used in

sentence or offer salary information for tech-writing jobs here in the Silicon
Valley or suggest how to document quitting Windows. But I need some information
and it is related -- however tangentially -- to our profession.

Any former humanities majors who are now technical writers -- if there are any
such out there -- might appreciate my question. I just finished a bio of Walker
Percy written by Jay Tolson at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for
Scholarship in D.C. and I had a question I wanted to ask him.

How in the world would I find out if the aforementioned Jay Tolson has an
Internet address, presumably @ the WWICfS?

There's been a lot of discussion recently re: books on the Internet. What I
want is something like an Internet White Pages, but not the Internet Yellow
Pages I've glanced at over at Barnes & Noble.

Any ideas, suggestions, tips?

It occurs to me that my request might be answered 2 different ways:

1) Someone out there in TechwhirLand might actually know Jay Tolson, but then,
like the old proverb, you gave me a fish so I could eat for today, which
wouldn't be bad, but I am concerned about the long term.

2) But teach me to fish, etc., etc.
