16 Years Later — Collapse of Time and Distance –and AT&T is maximizing this how?

Jul 11, 2009

Peter Shankman posted this on his post, and got that idea from Bad Pitch Blog. But this 1993 series of AT&T ads does ring a very strong bell as to 2009:

So we have collapsed time and distance — and have gained what? Most of these ideas resonate with connection and transaction, carving out all the layers of distance and time, but making them instead invisible…and where is AT&T in most of this? Shifted into the mobile value chain of it, that isn’t really highlighted here at all?

So does it help to see the future if you pass along the blessings to others instead of maximizing it yourself?
