Overheard: The "Cyberspace is Taking Over" Edition

(In shuttle van from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. A middle-aged man from San Francisco is telling a young man from Israel what he needs to know about the Southwest.)

SAN FRANCISCAN: Santa Fe is really unique. It doesn't look like any other US city.

ISRAELI: Oh really?

SAN FRANCISCAN: No. Well, I guess these kinds of buildings might look familiar to you--you're probably used to seeing adobe houses, in Israel. But you don't really find them in the rest of the country.

ISRAELI: The material these buildings are made of--that's called adobe?

SAN FRANCISCAN: That's right, adobe.

ISRAELI: Like the software?
