Communication Wish List

I just returned from my business trip to Japan. Like many travelers, I was dismayed by the maze of communication technologies necessary to be in touch with business contacts, friends, and family during my stay.

On the flight home, I dreamed about the perfect worldwide communication technology:

  • No expensive long-distance phone charges
  • No confusing country and access codes
  • A single identity for phone, email, and IM
  • Anytime access (e.g., desktop, laptop, smartphone)
  • Presence detection so friends and associates can know when I am sleeping
  • Anywhere access (e.g., airports, hotels, taxis, trains, etc.)
  • A built-in microphone in my laptop!

Feel free to share any ideas you may have in the comments section.
