    thanks of the great input Mayssoun. It will be interesting to see if people agree with you. It is clear that digital technology has been a game changer for Agencies. However, there is a new game in the wings every week these days.
    I agree that proximity to the 'client' is going to be less of an issue. If clients want the best talent, and cannot find it on their doorstep, then why can't they go further afield, and let digital technology shorten the distance?
    With regards your comment on the importance of human interaction adding a compassionate touch to business, I would disagree. It is a core fundamental to business success, and building trust between two partners. I do not say that such interaction always has to involve face-to-face in the same room (the contribution of skype to human interaction has been profound) but just that we should not treat it as an add-on. It is not a widget.


    Hey P & B,
    I believe the future is here, it is a matter of time before it reveals itself as present and we embrace the change it brings.
    The virtual digital world delivers today all the solutions we can possibly think of. The human direct interaction will still ad a compassionate edge to business handling in the communications world, but my thinking is that sooner than we think, the net will be our primary supplier for all our communication requirements. The economic meltdown got everyone to revisit their expansion theories, there will be less people behind the desks but who will offer a wider spectrum of services on the Agencies side beacuse, on the end user side there will be more cost consciousness and a more demanding Clients who can get serviced from anywhere in the world on their ipads for a really competitive price an Agency cannot afford to offer...
