Jerry Seinfeld Lampoons the Mobile Phone and Communication

Three years ago, I asked a couple of questions in this space about communications:

Ask yourself this question. How many times during a given week do you ignore a phone call coming into your mobile device even though you know exactly who is calling with your fancy photo-generated call display. How many times during the week do you simply collect voicemails and then decide how to respond? (ie. treating voicemails like email, often responding with a text or email itself)

Ask yourself this next question. How often do you utilize texting, email, direct messages in Facebook and Twitter or posts to public or private collaboration sites to reach your intended audience, be it one-to-one or one-to-many?

During the second night of Jimmy Fallon hosting The Tonight Show from New York City, Jerry Seinfeld lampoons — and sheds light — on what I was getting at in a hilarious five minutes of entertainment. Enjoy.
