conference call - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Amelia wondered if there really was "conferring" going on in a conference call, because that implied that there would be actual listening and consideration of various perspectives. Could they really integrate new information and "live edit" their own brains or would they leave with the same bias and static opinions they entered with?
The conference calls in virtual reality were awesome. You could roll out of bed wearing whatever you want... or nothing at all... and you would appear as your ever-so-smart avatar. The avatar was made at a photo-session in town with a professional photographer, make-up artist and hair stylist. No more flying around or buying a gazillion outfits. You can even change your outfit via an app if you want. I can have a meeting in New York at eleven in the morning while still in London.
Once the VR headset is on my kitchen is replaced my a well lit forest scene. Other than the table we sit around, everything else is natural. There is birdsong, and somewhere nearby a beach, because I can hear the ocean too. Conference calls have come a long way since the early days.
The conference call has folks in it from all over the globe. The future certainly can be friendly, if we choose to use our technology to form real loving bonds.
