Gordon’s Notes: The phone call is dead – sort of

Phil Bradley comments on a Tech Crunch essay on the death of the phone call.

John (agreeing with Phil) comments that the unscheduled phone call is dead.

I (almost) disagree. The unscheduled social call is welcome. When my sister called me this morning, it was welcome.

The unscheduled WORK call is rude. I agree. I get one or two unscheduled "work" calls every day. Until now – I couldn't put my finger on it. I think to myself – as I discover during the first few seconds – who it is and why they called me .. "why didn't you just send me an e-mail so we could schedule a call?"
