Newsletters of Note VI
Fine, it's a catalog. But if I had a million dollars, this is exactly the kind of stuff I'd squander my new-found wealth on. The Winter 2003 catalog of Leadership Directories' guides to "who's who in the leadership of the United States" is an information and social network junkie's wet dream.

For roughly $350, you can subscribe to the service's quarterly directories of members of Congress, city and county government officials, state and federal officials, judges, executives, media workers, lawyers, and other people. Directory entries for the Corporate Yellow Book include direct contact information for officers and management, major subsidiaries and divisions, and the board of directors. And the News Media Yellow Book comprises more than 2,300 national news media organizations, covering executives, administrators, editors, and reporters.

And for a measly $3,300, you can gain access to all 14 directories online. Sheesh. It's like Lexis-Nexis for people! Any Media Dietician benefactors want to spring for the Corporate and News Media yellow books? My birthday's coming up at the end of February.
