This month's poll asked, "What tool do you most depend on for staying in touch?" The results surprised me.
Out of 77 people who reponded, 66 (that's 86%) chose their cellphone. By contrast, the BlackBerry got just 6 votes, and laptop computers got just two.
Obviously, the findings of this poll are not statistically significant. But the trend is so overwhelming, it's fascinating.
Of course I knew that cell phones are essential to today's mobile business people - I consider it one of the key drivers of the "entrepreneurial revolution" of the 1980s/90s. But I had assumed that the BlackBerry and/or laptop were new enabling new and perhaps deeper, more value-added day-to-day communications opportunities than the mobile phone. But I seem to have been wrong.
I guess that's why Ted Rogers is a zillionaire, and I'm still blogging.
