Go and get a copy of the November issue of the UK Wired magazine.

Read the lead article on the future of Facebook Messenger.

It changes everything.

The way we communicate.

The way we buy.

The way we organise.

The way we live.

In the next 5 years, say “goodbye” to the telephone conversation, to email, to text, to e-commerce as we know it, to client/patient/team/supplier/service/product management.

I’ve been reading the magazine for over 12 years – this is simply the article that has most made me stop dead in my tracks and realise that there is a (another) new world coming.

Better get ready.
