My friend Tom and I were using iChat on our Macintosh laptops with built-in iSight cameras and Wi-Fi access to share information about upcoming presentations we were both working on. My iPhone rang in the middle of our video chat so I texted the person who had called me and I told them that I would chat with them via IM in a minute.
I started thinking about how, according to my father, he used to have to walk to school, uphill both ways in the snow, carrying pennies and nickels in his pocket so he could pay for lunch and some telephone calls at a pay phone (A pay phone? What is that?)
Tom and I discussed how media has evolved from help wanted signs to classified ads and from online job postings to social media. Tom and I had a good laugh and he shared the video below (from 1981) with me in response to my comments about how the leadership in some media organizations has suffered from a lack of innovation and vision.
Amazing how far we have come. How far will we go? Which media will remain and what will emerge?
What is next in recruitment and employment communications? How will brands evolve and engage?
