Trying to arrange lunch with the wonderful @angusfarquhar today at short notice somehow managed to involve the use of Twitter, GTalk, and our mobiles simultaneously in a great example of male geeks communicating in three mediums but still struggling to decide a location and time effectively.
But eventually we finally managed to make it to TheBreakfastClubSoho, which proved to be a good choice.
So microblogging, IM’ing, chatting on the phone, and talking in person, in the space of 20 minutes.
And that just emphasised the fact that the actual technology we were using was fairly irrelevant – being able to share links, locations and maps virtually made life slightly easier, but at the end of the day it all comes down to humans communicating to be able to achieve whatever task they require.
Please don’t forget that when new technology appears.
