Nil Communication

Nil Communication

"Mr. Watson, come here -- I want to see you."

-- Alexander Graham Bell makes the first telephone call on March 10, 1876. He was speaking to his assistant in the next room.

*****************************************

Just imagine what auto correct could do with this.
That first phone call set a precedent in misunderstanding words.
Mr. Watson's journal says that the first words were,
"Mr. Watson, come here, I want you."

That first, simple statement was mixed up in its transition
from sound to paper.

The sound of a voice, can mean something different,
when not heard.
