Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Ryan – Calling phobia

The Good ol' Telephone

The Good ol' Telephone

Like millions of others, texting is something that has integrated itself into my daily life and i have no complaints. it’s such a simple form of communication and its a great way to correspond with a lot of people at once. but i think that it is bringing some people apart rather than together. i sometimes get annoyed with people who insist on texting over calling.

“What’s Steve doing?”

“I dunno call him.”

“I’ll text him.”

i realized that i text people so much that it is almost annoying to call someone, or get a call. other than my close friends, when i see an incoming call i almost think, uhh what do they want? something i’ve also realized is that my phone speaking skills have gone down. i get more tongue tied on the phone now than when i was 8. Am i alone on this or do other people feel like the quality of the phone conversation has greatly decreased?

i agree with you. texting has become the most popular way of comunication in my generation, at least here in Quito between me and my friends, is rare to have someone calling you (except for my parents!) i sometimes get worried if one of my friends call me cause it must be because something serious must have happened.
and i also believe the quality of phone has decrease, i get really annoyed sometimes because you cant even understand what people are trying to say. maybe thats the reason why we choose texting over calling.
however, texting has its bad side too, for example ive heard that it creats ansiety and some kind of adiction. could it be possible?

really liked your post i belive its something that’ll give us a lot to talk about!

Texting, I think. is convenient but you can never get across a certain tone or show emotion with them,I mean sure there are those little smiley faces but I mean, come on. That is why I call a lot more than I text, cause you can hear in someones voice how they are feeling.
