Channels of Communication

57 Channels and Nothing On

When I come in to work in the morning I "wake up" my workstation [1], and then I start up communications channels. There is a telephone on my desk, but through the computer, there is much more communication these days. Let's see what I do to communicate:

So, there are about 10 different channels through which more or less personal messages can reach me (not counting the phone). Even if I don't count multiple accounts (mail, irc channels) I end up with 7 channels of stuff reaching me. And there I was, thinking of the telephone as an annoyance.

[1]As they say: Buses stop at a bus station, trains stop at a train station, work stops at a workstation.
