Technology today is isolating right?
Everyone is sitting on their phones swiping and scrolling. Headphones on. Avoiding eye contact.
Technology gives us more ways to communicate, more people to speak with, from more cities, cultures and countries than has ever been possible in history.
Not personal. Hyperpersonal.
Hyperpersonal communication has been a theory among social scientists since the 90s. A theory that communication through technology can lead to a higher level of interpersonal connection. Technology creates new, deeper relationships between people who would have never met in meatspace.
A few months ago I joined forces with a friend of mine on an important mission.
To spread hyperpersonal communication, allowing formal relationships to become friendships.
That’s why we’re building Telegraphy.
Telegraphy is the ultimate hyperpersonal email application.
By connecting Telegraphy with your Gmail or G Suite account you curate a private, invite only members list of the investors, advisors, customers and friends that matter the most to you and your business.
And who’s we?
For this project I’m not alone. I met Ben King a few years ago while I was building Chew.
It’s rare to find one person with so much experience. And not on any small project. Ben lead technology at Roosterteeth scaling the video community to the multi-million users it has today. Along with informing their video and social strategy on Facebook and Youtube.
The power of two Ben’s on a mission.
The first beach head is the startup world. Startups are built on new and lasting friendships. That’s why we’re so lucky to be in this game. In business built of reaching the most people, getting leads, closing deals, making partnerships we forget that we’re all just people.
Today we announced that Telegraphy is open in beta through Betalist.
