If you’d like to talk, get me on IM

I’m continually surprised by how many people want to ‘speak’ to me, audibly.

It never ceases to amaze me. There’s a certain amount of overhead that goes into a live audio call when you’re interacting real time. You can avoid that overhead to get the message through or get a response easily with instant messaging. I use it all across the day, wherever I am.

The brilliant thing with IM is that if I’m busy, momentarily or continually, then, well, you won’t get a response — until I’m not.

I sometimes need quick responses when I’m working on a post. If I can find the PR or the relevant person on IM, I’ll ask the question and generally wait for a response. But email? It’s not real-time enough…!

Add me and say hi: ewanmacleod@gmail.com, ewanmacleod@hotmail.com, ewanjmacleod@yahoo.co.uk, ewanjmacleod on Skype
