IMportant Communication

Instant Messaging has really transformed the way many geeks communicate. The instant gratification of interactive conversation has replaced the slow give-and-take of back-and-forth emails.

So, the other day, I'm in a meeting. We all have our laptops so we can take notes (and, for many others, so they can read and respond to emails) during the meeting. I'm taking notes and calling up relevant documents, when the little IM window pops up.

It's my coworker, who's also in the meeting. I see "Best. Meeting. Ever." in the window, and it's all I can do to keep from busting out laughing. It was a pretty boring meeting.

The best part? I set a new personal record for IM usage by relative distance. He was sitting literally two feet away.

OMG - LOL. Not sure how you contained your laughter.
