A 21st century butler

Adina Levin has come up with a much better way to say what I've said about differentiated availability:
...the automated equivalent of an 18th/19th century butler, who mediated social interaction for the wealthy at a time when the intrusive, in-person visit was a primary method for making social contact.

The butler has broad and nuanced knowledged of the circumstances in which the Lady is to be acknowledged to be IN.

Exactly. I've used a secretary analogy before in conversations, but for some reason never blogged it. I like the butler example better, though, because it feels more all encompassing.
