No distance too far

Whenever I think of technology and mobile technology, it never fails to amaze me that for a period of time and decades there has been such swift advancement.

It’s been a wonder back then when the world knew about the invention of the telephone, people could connect from different parts of the world and talk. After that it was time for pagers, which was quite handy for professional such as doctors, engineers, managers.

Then finally mobile phones arrived. When mobiles were introduced, it took communication to another level and people could take it to places and connect, that was history.

But then more advancement and breakthrough invention came and an era of smart phones surfaced to be discovered. Now people could not only communicate but do multiple tasks and handle their business on the go, which was pretty cool and amazing too.

But then with all those facilities one more added to the innovation that made it easier for people to not only connect but interact with each other, share photos, videos, voice chat and do many things at once, this awesome tool which literally made distance a thing of the past was named “WECHAT”.

I consider myself lucky to be in this era in which communication is under our fingertip and there is a rich history supporting it.

Today I am sharing a post which is in association with indiblogger and support of WECHAT, a contest which  allows me to choose 5 or more people in a WeChat group – asking who would they be, and why? What would i talk about?

There is a saying that:

Nothing makes the earth seem as spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes
By Henry David Thoreau

If given a chance to speak with a group of people on Wechat, I would like to converse with the following:

American

African

Arab

Chinese

Australian

Discuss on issues from a citizen point of view, the pro’s and con’s of living there, place to travel  in their country, culture, political stability, corruption,  infrastructure, cultural harmony, economy and much more.

Why would I like to add them in the group because it would intersect the information to all the other nations.

However the Chat didn’t started the way it should be, lets check out !!

Me: Hi my foreign natives, I welcome you all to this group.

American: Hi there, thanks for of inviting me..

Arab: Yes, my American brother  .. I am happy to have you in this conversation

Chinese: Hello people, I am humbled that I was invited, I have a business proposal for you all if you would like to know, that is!

African: Well, I don’t have a business plan, I have a “WILL” to give you all, which was left by your ancestors, please let me know who all are interested, I shall explain you  in personal chat.

Australian: Stop it mate, we are here not to discuss all this, we are fedup of corruption and scams, we know all the tricks of trade mate, so cut it.

American: Hey mate, I agree with you… we have our own intelligence agencies covering and busting internet scams ! so please buzz off..

African: My American and Austrian Brother, I was also not kidding, but if you are not interested, its fine.. just don’t create a scene ..

Chinese: Hey guys would like to inform you that I have many different opportunities and businesses .. if anyone interested please let me know ..

Me: I am not..

African: Well, I think we are not here to discuss this..

American: Hey dude, just keep your proposals for those Arabs .. they get fooled into your venture

Arab: If we get fooled in those ventures, we make sure there is no existence after that .. I hope you got it …

American: Hey, you know what? I got scared !! lol

Arab: Voice Chat (Arabic abuse)

Me: cut it guys

Chinese: Yes, be in harmony, we here for opportunities not fight my friends..

Australian: Yes mate, agree with you ..

Me: My friends let discuss on the issue from a citizen point of view, the pro’s and con’s of living in your country, place to travel, culture, political stability, corruption,  infrastructure, cultural harmony, economy and other noticeable issues

The chat continues …….
