I can remember the day I officially declared that I am too old to learn any new technology.
We had just put in a new phone system that integrated into our email. The 20-something help desk
kid guy was trying to teach me how to use it. The phone rang, and suddenly my computer made a strange ping sound, a popup window appeared on my screen and something shot into my email inbox. I went to pick up the phone and he commanded “Stop! You never have to touch your phone again. Just select the pop up button. It is so easy”. (Yeah, right. You try, after 25 years of conditioning, not picking up your receiver when the phone rings!)
It was too much and I swore off technology at that moment.
Well, here I am three years later. I’ve mastered a new Blackberry, I can program my TiVo, I know how to use my OnStar in the car and now I’m even learning how to post on a new blog. The 20-something Trabian who showed me the html codes swore it was easy. Right. (um, did that link work?!?)
It has been one week since we launched Our Voices. We’ve received some very nice accolades. I’d like to share them with you.
Jim Bruene, of NetBanker (one of the most widely read blogs in our industry) gave it an A+.
William Azaroff, the driving force behind Vancity’s Change Everything, said we kicked it up a notch
And two marketing / innovation blogs said this:
Tinfoiling used the term ingeniuous
EP Experience Planner cites Verity as a great example of advocacy and transparency.
I’ve also been waiting to link to this post:
Currency Marketing says we “totally get it”
Those are some nice comments to end the week on, aren’t they? Thanks all for the kind words. We appreciate them.
I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend.
