Conversation is the medium by which we build society, bring ideas to life, solve complex problems and create meaning. Conversation is at the heart of what it means to be human.
In 17th century Europe, coffeehouses were the cool places to go for meaningful conversation. For the price of a coffee, locals could meet up to discuss the news of the day, new ideas and other issues of professional or communal concern. The Wikipedia entry on coffeehouses suggests that "the absence of alcohol created an atmosphere in which it was possible to engage in more serious conversation than in an alehouse".
Of course, social media, on-line chat and microblogging has transformed our ability to talk to each other. Or has it? Does it not sometimes seem more like an on-line alehouse than a coffeehouse?
Well, if you long for a proper conversation on-line, then watch this space. Our new communication app is just around the corner.
