The Pursuit of Amazing
June 2, 2014
A few years ago, while promoting his latest comedy show on the late night circuit, comedian Louis C.K. in frustration said, “Everything’s amazing, No one’s happy.” During his segment he talked about making a phone call with a rotary phone when he was young dialing was the actual rotations or “sparks” and people were annoyed to get a phone number with a zero because it meant more effort to make a call. Technology has come a long way since then, voice dialing has now become a standard feature on most phones. The mobile phone is now referred to as a smart phone due to the device’s ability to run various applications, ranging from mobile video to real time weather forecasting. Years later Mr. C.K’s assessment remains true, people are not happy with their technology, even if a device is considered smart or amazing.
The telephone has been around for quite some time and we take this amazing technology for granted. As a natural extension to pre-existing technology we were not happy with just the telephone, so telephone town hall technology was built to address the need to connect one caller or multiple callers to a large group, maximizing outreach and connectivity. We are still not happy with this achievement, we want to collect sentiments from call participants and continue to innovate person to person outreach. Though we whole heartedly agree with Mr. C.K., at Tele-Town Hall we believe it is the pursuit of amazing that leads to happiness.
