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.
