Marvin Weisbord: Techniques to match our values

Here’s the way it was in 1969 when I became a consultant: NO cell phones, NO pagers, NO fax machines; NO personal computers, NO PowerPoint, NO CD’s, NO DVD’s, NO internet. My “personal digital assistant” was a little black book in which I wrote down dates in pencil. Blackberries were something you put on pancakes. The Sony Walkman would not be invented for 10 years. Airplanes could go 500 miles an hour, and the schedule from Philadelphia to Boston was 50 minutes. Today airplanes still go 500 miles an hour and the same trip takes an hour and half. But that’s a different speech.
