"One day I was at a cocktail party and I saw some people over in the corner," Mr. Karlin recalled in a 2003 lecture. "They were obviously looking at me and talking about me. Finally a lady from this group came over and said, 'Are you the John Karlin who is responsible for all-number dialing?' " Mr. Karlin drew himself up with quiet pride. "Yes, I am," he replied. "How does it feel," his inquisitor asked, "to be the most hated man in America?"

Wow, them's some definite first world problems right there...

Tax Boy: Chevello: No he isn't. That's the character who forced us to 10 digit dialing. Seriously? I have to dial the area code even when I'm in the same one? Stupid.

One of the many awesome things about Austin is that they've somehow managed to retain 7-digit dialing despite a huge increase in population and cellphones.

Oops. never mind, apparently 10-digit dialing just started in 2013.

/Austin used to be cool, man.
