Calling the Book Helpdesk

Very very funny. Monk calls the helpdesk to get assistance with a difficult new technology, "the book."

"So, you can't open it?" "No, it's just been lying there." Scrolls were much easier.

I can't see where the video comes from--a Scandinavian country which, to me, makes it sound like a Monty Python skit. David Weinberger posted the link at Joho the Blog.

UPDATE: Jan 22/07. It appears that this video "has been removed by the user." A clue as to why is provided by our colleague David who sent this info to me
"It's from a show called Øystein & Meg (Øystein & I) produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting television channel (NRK) in 2001. The spoken language is Norwegian, the subs in Danish. It's written by Knut Nærum and performed by Øystein Bache and Rune Gokstad."

Perhaps the poster to YouTube didn't have permission to post from the television channel.
