Are You HyperConnected?

by Joanna Pineda Posted on June 10, 2008

A recent study by Nortel and IDC showed just how wired and connected we have become. The study found that:

Seven devices and nine applications! Okay, I use four devices: My laptop, iMac, regular phone, and cell phone. And I thought that was over the top, but seven?

I can think of eight applications I use to stay connected and have people stay connected with me: E-mail, voice mail, text messaging, IM, Facebook, LinkedIn, personal blog, company blog. I can barely keep up with all these communication vehicles and I’m not even hyperconnected! Last weekend, I picked up voice mail messages on my home phone and discovered three messages that were nearly a week old. Can I / should I even consider twittering? I wonder if that’s why my husband and I like to vacation in places like Cambodia and Vietnam and we don’t stay in the big cities? Are you hyperconnected?

One reply on “Are You HyperConnected?”

I would have thought I was hyper-connected, but I don’t even come close in the number of devices! I use 3: laptop, reg phone and cell phone. But on the number of applications, I have 4 email addresses. So, does that count as 4 applications?
