My job has a lot to do with synchronicity.

What i mean by that is, things happening at basically the same time. I work in telecommunications, and this is a concept most people are very familiar with.

In a phone call, both people have to be there at the same time. Not the same place, but the same time.

A face to face, also known as f2f, has to be at the same place and the same time. The nerdword for the same place is co-location, sometimes called co-lo.

A phone call doesnt’ need the same place, as long as there is technology in place that connect the two people. Cell towers, cell phones, regular wired phone equipment, SOMETHING that allows people to be far away but still talk at the same time.

But they both have to be ther at the same time


then again, there are ways of talking that don’t require synchronicity. Remember letters? Tools in the form of paper and ink, a delivery mechanism, the education background to READ, letters allow asynchronous communication.

Email uses different tools, but also allows for asynchronous communication.

To step away from nerddom for a moment, there are things in life that require synchronicity and others that don’t.

Some moments don’t come back.

But some moments will come if you wait.

And you just have to wait.
