Communication tech as second rate

Posted on Sunday, 23 April, 2006 by


Today the lady who milks our cows every morning stopped by just to tell us something about a cow. It wasn´t a social visit while she knew we were working. She was on her way home from the café, so it was a small detour, but our driveway is quite long and bumpy: why didn´t she just phone? 

She has a telemovel and uses it frequently. But, I figure, phoning remains a second rate substitute. If she has the opportunity to do the real thing, which is pass by and talk face to face, she will always prefer it.
