Nilofer Merchant: Got a meeting? Take a walk
Lol. Yes, and it gets people away from the office & interruptions, and their play style can tell you a lot about their business style. My point is, it's not a new idea, this goes on all the time, and has, throughout history. Microsoft was famous for it in the "old days." There's one big impediment to both, however - WEATHER.

Why do we bother with spelling?
Thanks! I had a harder time writing that than you would think! It's not so easy if you're making it up as we go. Try it for yourself! lol If we didn't have spelling rules, bak can mean back or bake (remember learning about the 'silent e'? or that ck, th, sh, are two letters that can mean a single sound instead of two.We memorize rules that give language structure and meaning, otherwise words are just empty noise.

Except he left out the word tricky.... And got the whole sentence wrong. Look at the Bible, when the Hebrews didn't use vowels. There's a reason they later added vowels to their language. We use standardization to come up with an equal way of understanding. Language is a science, expression is an art.

Technology doesn't create loneliness, it reveals it. Once revealed, technology can help alleviate isolation and spur connection.
What I thought was amazing is she completely ignored that in her very own example, it was a txt conversation to confirm plans for meeting later. So she gave evidence that actually worked against her. Technology has created virtual communities for people with disabling chronic illnesses that would otherwise keep them completely socially isolated. Online, they can meet other people like them, network, share stories... and they're not the only community for which this has been helpful. Example - Egypt's coup via Twitter. Technology empowers us.
