What a wonderful new-age Microsoft world we live in. Never thought I'd read a headline like this. 
Today’s customers live in a multi-platform, multi-cloud, multi-OS world – that’s just reality. This world brings new challenges and customers need tools to make everything work together.

Phone Calls are Rude

If you're 30 or over, you may remember how back in the 80s and 90s, calling during dinner hours was considered rude. The hours between 5-7 were for the family, and you'd never have your meal interrupted by a phone call. But, maybe that was just a Midwest thing.

Prior to the phone, the main way to contact someone was via a letter. The first asynchronous form of human communication. Along comes the phone, and it basically kills most personal mail by fixing the latency problem. In fact, I don't think I've written a personal letter in my entire life. However, calls were a step backwards in a sense: phone calls are synchronous, you need to answer them and interact, or not get the message at all (answering machines aside).

With the Internet being so pervasive; email, texting, and instant messenger is in the progress of killing the phone. The only phone calls I make now seem to be to customer service departments. I don't even call for takeout/delivery anymore, now that you can do that online. Obviously, the need for live communication will never disappear, but there are plenty of better, unintrusive ways, to contact people that let them respond on their own time and leisure.

When I get a phone call now, I interpret it as someone saying: Stop doing whatever you are doing now, because whatever I am calling about is more important than that. Chances are, it really wasn't. Phone calls are rude.



Obviously, family and close friends are exempt... usually.

SVG Uploads in WordPress (the Inconvenient Truth) https://bjornjohansen.no/svg-in-wordpress #svg #wordpress
Enabling SVG support in WordPress is really easy – just add a code snippet. But why aren’t SVG files supported in the first place?

Story
Tagline
Google addicted, CSS3 SASS Mobile Web Apps. Google Trusted Photographer. Amazon AWS lover and Wordpress equilibrist - New gTLD Evangelist ! 日本語でも出来る!
Introduction
I believe that constant research and curiosity are the very best way to achieve professional excellence.
This is why I love to challenge myself with new projects and experiments. This attitude drove me from an initial career as a pure graphic designer with 2D / 3D tools to a more hybrid professional profile, in which I can combine my graphic skills and aesthetic vision with web programming techniques.
In particular, I am enthusiastic about the pureness and efficiency of CSS SASS Compass design. I am also a long time Adobe Creative Suite (Cloud) user, with emphasis on advanced photo retouch with Photoshop and Lightroom

I am also a Google Trusted Photographer area: leonardo.pics
