For me, one of the wonders of our age is that location is no longer an issue in relation to communication, and that in turn links to friendships and work. However, when I think of my global contacts I like to understand where they are in their day, as this affects how we will communicate. On her recent Vox Daily blog, Stephanie Ciccarelli reveals how I manage this using a Yahoo Widget, “World Time Digital Clock“.

If time is the fourth dimension, then I’m fortunate to live in a 4D world! Stephanie quotes me saying, “In terms of relative time zones, living in Turkey is perfect. I am able to do a full day’s work before yours starts, and my free time in the evening coincides with your working day, so I can potentially have two working days for just living one. How cool is that?”
Of course this also highlights the benefits of developing business relationships both through social media and personal contact, such as the VOICE 2010 Conference. So after you’ve read the Vox Daily blog, come back here and listen to my conversation with Stephanie which we recorded in Los Angeles, this June.
