I’ve had three good phone calls this week–informative, illuminating, entertaining, even difficult phone calls. They have been the best discretionary uses of my time since Sunday.

For my money, the phone is the most important modern tool for human-to-human communication we have. The subsequent inventions of email, text, and video chat have not improved on it.

Fight me about it.

  1. Fight you? Nope, I surrender! I agree totally. It’s so much better to hear people’s voices than to fire off a written message (I wrote — uh-oh!) and not know how they’re feeling or what they might not understand. As for video chats, everyone is more concerned with appearance than what gets said.
