A long-time companion and I were recently reminiscing about how much the telecoms industry has changed in the last 20 years. I remember my parents were unable to have a decent long-distance conversation with my sister who was studying overseas, and would then receive a bill shock at the end of the month. For the same reasons, those conversations tended to be short and to the point. And yes, I remember using a phone booth regularly!
Now worldwide video calls for business on your smartphone are normal. Exchanging ideas, moods, opinions through all kinds of media, and especially through social networks, has taken global communications to unimaginable levels. Our entire way of interacting with each other has truly changed; the future has arrived quicker than we thought.
