Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, today is my birthday. It’s not even 1pm and I’ve already been very fortunate to be congratulated by friends, family and coworkers. But it’s not that I’m writing this entry to brag about it to the world (ok, may be a little). The point is, how have people chosen to congratulate me? Media, Media, Media.
This all reminded me of this rather famous scene in the film “He’s Just Not That Into You” where Drew Barrymore is talking to Scarlett Johanson about how love lives get even more complicated with all the technology available. Of course, today in my particular case, it’s not about love nor is it a bad thing to be contacted through a series of channels.
So far I’ve been congratulated in person, by sms, Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, Cell Phone call, Regular land line call, e-card, e-mail, inbox messages, MSN, Skype, Facebook Chat, BBM Chat (that’s BlackBerry Chat), and Whatsapp. Thus, I want to thank all the people who remembered and chose technology to surprise this marketer. Thank you!!
