We are back at it with a discussion on Alexander Graham Bell.

We discuss his life and many of his inventions, but spend a good amount of time discussing the telephone and the societal impact that it had. He was very insightful and even predicted that at some point in the future, we would be able to see the person we were talking to on the phone.

When the cell phone came around things like free evenings and weekends were a selling point!
