  2. 2. Why Should I Care?
  3. 3. Why Should I Care? &quot;Well-informed people know it is impossible to transmit the voice over wires. Even if it were, it would be of no practical value.&quot; &quot;This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.&quot; &quot;Why would any person want to use this ungainly and impractical device when he can send a messenger to a local telegraph office and have a clear written message sent to any large city in the United States?&quot;

Even if it were, it would be of no practical value.&quot; - Boston Post, 1865 &quot;This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.&quot; - Western Union internal memo, 1876 &quot;Why would any person want to use this ungainly and impractical device when he can send a messenger to a local telegraph office and have a clear written message sent to any large city in the United States?&quot; - From the report to the President of Western Union written by the committee charged with investigating potential purchase of Bell's telephone patent for $100,000

  19. 21. “ As a new generation enters the workforce, companies believe they’re on the horns of a dilemma: lock out the social networking sites and deal with discontented employees , or leave access unfettered and absorb a loss of productivity But the issue isn’t black and white. As a communications medium , there may be benefits to taking advantage of online social networking for developing valuable professional relationships . Companies need to become educated on the nuances of the various utilities and develop strategies and policies that take into account both the risks and the benefits.” Jay Cline, Computerworld, 10 April 2008 Afraid ?
