A thing of the past
As I am walking around the Orange County Convention Center, I am continually amazed by the organization it must take to have 3 conferences going on simultaneously and have 2 more coming in today. One thing I noticed was the telephone areas that are still present; usually, as in the picture, with one lonely phone and a chair. It struck me as kind of sad so I decided to document it. Basically this says to me, this space is no longer used for telephones since everyone under the sun has a cell phone. I have an idea, though, why not create charging stations for phones and other devices in place of the absent pay phones? Many folks at FETC look for a seat on the periphery of the room in order to get close to an electrical outlet for their device--handheld, netbook, laptop, or tablet. Just a thought from the mind of Laurie!
