A confused mind always say no!
There are three apocryphal events in human communications, in my humble opinion. First, was drawings. In the beginning, cave dwellers made drawings on the wall to tell stories, share ideas and be creative. The Egyptians formalized drawing into a language which can be shared both across distances and time – from one generation to the next. Probably the most dramatic use of language was the Ten Commandments delivered to Moses. Of little note was probably one of Jerry Seinfeld’s distance ancestors thinking to himself while Moses was presenting these commandments – “thank goodness there was only 10 commandments, one more commandment would have been too heavy to carry.”
Thus, stone tablets and pyramids make great and very long-lasting devices for storing information but a very difficult and lengthy for newspaper writer to carve their stories and the paperboy to deliver – imagine a load of stone newspapers.
Second, the next apocryphal communications technology was the creation of the printing press by Gutenberg around 1450 which made the job of printing much easier. However, the creation and delivery of the content was still expensive, lengthy and potentially lethal (book burning and censorship – banned books). However, today there are probably two billion books published annually with billions more stored in libraries.
Third, major apocryphal communications technology came in the form of the internet. With 4+ billion users accessing the internet worldwide daily, the internet can distribute almost any kind of information, whether music, video, art, graphics, animation as well as spam. If Jerry Seinfeld were to say something, among other things, he might say “putting static text on the internet is a waste of the internet.” However, the vast majority of web sites have no animation, video and little content worthy viewing by anyone.
In the spirit of incorporating visuals into human and business communication, we created more than 150 Acticon-Action-Icons to depict business and other activities to help speed communications and reduce confusion as visual communications is the fastest form of communications. We react visually faster than by any other means. You see a “Stop Light” and you instinctively know what to do without even thinking about it. In addition, as communication is more global, multi-linguial, cultural, religious, ethical, etc. other issues come into play when attempting to convey thoughts, beliefs and actions. My own saying is “communication will always fail except by chance” in hope for the best but assume the worst when communicating with another person. We have incorporated these “acticons” into our new app that you can include in any Twitter post in hope that it will reduce confusion and enhance communication.
