Where is the intersection of technology and “human behavior change”?
I always thought it was a short gap between the introduction of a world changing technology and the evolution of how we use it. Apparently not with voicemail.
How much longer do you think we will keep explaining to people how to leave us a message on our voice mail? I wonder when we will get to the point that we don’t have to:
A. Point out the obvious and
B. Leave instructions like this:
“Hello, You have reached Joe Schmoe”
–I know, I called you.
“I am not able to take this call right now…”
–Really? Is that why I am in voicemail?
“Please leave me a message…”
–Yep, get it. Been here before.
“…after the tone…”
–Shew! Good thing he explained that! My 22 years leaving voice mails and I STILL don’t understand the order of operations for this process.
I would love it if the phone just rang three times then beeped.
