In my clippings collection I have a transcript of a piece of Egyptian
hieroglyphics (I believe it came from a Xerox commercial some years
ago) proported to be by a certain Ptahhotep, Vizier to Isesi, dating
from the Fifth Egyptian Dynasty, 2300 BC, which would support a claim
that our profession is at least that old.
