    Today 143 years ago was granted a patent for inventing the telephone.

    What would Alex think of all of us sometimes sending stupid posts, instead of using the phone, sorry smart phone and call each other?

    I don't know what he would think!

    I am reminded of a small book called The Writing on the Wall: Social Media - the First 2000 Years which ranges from Roman graffiti to the modern day. I believe there were cases of male and female telegraph operators who somehow managed to become interested in each other and married... Which is to say that people don't change all that much in some respects, and the telephone is just one such technology in a long line.
