Friends from Shir Ami will recall that I often talked about the idea of having a fully interactive siddur on your 'palmpilot' (we didn't have fancypants phones then) or other handheld device. It's only a matter of time, and I thank Dan Medwin for that. But the question of what happens to communal prayer with it'fillah is a worthwhile question, both in the positive and the negative. Does it contract the circle of communal prayer? Does an e-siddur expand the circle? We'll find out soon!
