Always On, Always Connected

Back in early 2006 I was contracted to write a white paper for Palm smartphone higher education reps to use when calling on decision-makers at colleges and universities. The premise of my pitch within this paper was that students — already in 2006 — were beginning to be “always on, always connected” and the implied message was that these decision-makers better embrace Palm smartphones immediately!

I’m hearing those four words over-and-over again in podcasts, speeches and talks. Especially since the world is accelerating toward one where mobile devices are ubiquitous and people have them in their pockets or purses (or next to their bed at night) all the time.

I haven’t touted this white paper previously because of contractual obligations which long ago expired (especially since Palm was acquired by HP in 2010) but I was at a breakfast event this morning where a guy sitting next to me said again, “Borsch. You were telling me this stuff YEARS ago” and it made me think about this paper. So I’m posting it since, frankly, I’d forgotten about the paper until this morning and re-reading it was fun.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I’d seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never ‘discovered’ by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
