As an IT pro, you might think that I’m going to talk about cables and switches and routers. But instead, my topic is about people and relationships.

 

An old TV show and an old volume of short stories come to mind: “Connections” and “Six Degrees of Separation”.

 

  • “Connections” was a UK-based TV series/documentary created and hosted by James Burke. First aired in the late ’70s, the show “demonstrated how various discoveries, scientific achievements, and historical world events were built from one another successively in an interconnected way to bring about particular aspects of modern technology.” – Wikipedia

 

  • “Six Degrees of Separation” was a concept from a 1929 author who believed that the modern world was ‘shrinking’ due to the ever-increasing connectedness of human beings. Karinthy believed that “the growing density of human networks made the actual social distance far smaller”.

 

The common thread among us is the technology. By the phenomenal development of this thing that we now take for granted – the Internet – we have come together like no other time in history. And it is by this common thread that we conduct business, no matter the geographic limitation. And yet, by this same common thread, we also form a bond with our neighbor.

 

What matters most in our own connectivity is the relationship. In spite of distance, we can still develop trust, confidence and reliance on a person or firm from afar. The fabric that weaves our interrelations is made of communication, exchange and alliance.

 

No matter the method or location, we are a connected community.

In both the Android and the iOS versions of the mobile OneDrive app, you can scan a document, business card or whiteboard and then save it directly to OneDrive. Seconds later, the new scan appears synced within Finder on MacOS or within File Explorer on a Windows system.

You can also opt not to scan, but to take a photo or video and have their respective images saved directly to OneDrive.

OneDrive is part of your Office 365 subscription, so you can download and install it from either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
