The end of the line

Here’s a thought that been bouncing round my head for a while. Prompted again by the announcement that Twitter is now adding a push function to their service. Which is essentially a modern way of texting.

Let’s make an assumption. Wireless is covering the planet.

Now, why would I want to pay for a phone call using a network operator if I can do the same for free over the internet?.

What if Facebook put a call button on their site?

What if Twitter allowed you to call your followers?

What if you could call someone from your email? Oh hang on.

I obviously don’t really know what I am talking about, all I know is that my gut feeling hasn’t disappointed me in the past…like what I said about Spotify four years ago.

I am excited.

  1. True, that’s why the mobile operators are sh… their pants and blocking skype, etc. They see it coming, too. The scenario you are painting just has one unclear issue: who has paid for the infrastructure for global WLAN?
