Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter have become my main communication channels since leaving Microsoft. They are always open on my laptop and cell phone. It is somewhat surprising to me how effective these tools are at reaching individual people or thousands of people at the same time. The corporate email system seems oddly out of touch now. Strange now fast that happens. I have used Facebook and Twitter for a long time. But now that I am outside the corporate wall they have taken on new importance. Gmail is new to me, but I can already see why people have been raving about it. It is email, but different…better.
I also plan to change my cell phone experience. The Motorola Q with Windows Mobile is OK, but not great. I admit I have iPhone envy. But, the problem has been the carrier. My family has 5 phones on Verizon family plan. Verizon has GREAT nation-wide coverage. I can’t make the switch to AT&T. So, the new Android looks real good…and it works on the Verizon network. Sounds like a winner.
My life has been moving at warp speed over the past week. Literally meeting people and talking 14 hours a day. It is exhilarating and mind expanding. There are some amazing new technologies and innovations happening out there. Startups are making it happen, but so are innovative companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Twitter. Impressive companies doing leading edge stuff. I hope to be a part of one of these innovative startups or iconic companies real soon. And, I expect the communication tools will include things like Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Welcome to the new world of warp speed communications.
