Your world, Connected. We see these taglines for SPs and technology. Because with a smartphone or a PC there are a number of ways to communicate with other people.

Instant Messaging, Skype, Apple’s new Facetime.

You can talk to anyone else on the grid with your thoughts.

Ok – so you can IM someone. Big deal. How about skype? Communicating with your friend. Having an actual conversation. Silently. And he sees what you see.

It’s no different then communicating telepathically. Better, actually, because of the video component.

Sounds like impossible science fiction from the fifties, right?

In fact, if you were an observer from the fifties, you would look on incredulously and likely conclude mankind had discovered an innate telepathic ability.
