textual tension May 17, 2007Posted by nicholas gill in blackberry, thoughts.
I like the quotes in this Times article by the good folk at T-Mobile & o2 about how rude it is to text, talk and berry during meetings. Shame that their marketing teams didn’t take note of this. Apparently they’re well known for talking, texting and berry-action during meetings. It even happened during a high profile pitch for their entire CRM business a few years ago to the point where the agency stopped the pitch and were ready to about turn out of the building. I will happily admit to using the berry during long (i.e. 1hr plus) conference calls when the attention is known to wander… but face to face is pretty poor form.
