How I Work: Addendum

I’m not the only one who has experienced this change. From Wired Magazine:

Wired: Do you have a wireless connection like EV-DO so you can check your email while you’re in the car?

Martha Stewart: I have this. [Points to BlackBerry.] I’m constantly in touch. Sometimes it’s good; sometimes it’s bad.

Wired: There are downsides to everything.

Stewart: I think we are insane. I used to get 120 to 140 phone calls a day. And now rarely does the phone ring — other than a few archaic friends who call me — because of the BlackBerry.

Wired: That’s nice, though. You can reply at your convenience.

Stewart: No, I think it’s awful. My daughter emails me. When your daughter starts to email you instead of talk to you… It’s horrible. You cannot forget human communication.
