Synchronous communication. Add this to the long list of things about working that will puzzle your grandkids.
“Tell us about fax machines again, grandpa.”
“And what about synchronous communication?”
Well just have a seat, sonny. Let me tell you a story.
Synchronous communication meant when I exchanged information at the office, you had to send AND receive the information at the same time. So I would call someone on the phone, wait for them to pick up, say some information while at the exact same moment they received that information. It happened all the time. Even way back in 2015 when we had all sorts of tools to stop it, it happened all the time.
