Tell Us a Story
As part of our EXCHANGE project, we are collecting stories about the telephone, exchange, and communication. Share a story with us!
Here are some ideas that might prompt a memory.
What is the first phone you remember? What did it look like? What calls do you remember from it? How did you use it?
Did you ever use a “party line"? Did you ever have a confusing interaction because of the multiple parties?
What is a phone call you remember? Who was it with? Why is the call memorable?
What's your first thought when the phone rings in the night?
Have you ever missed a phone call you wish you'd answered?
What does "exchange" mean to you? Have you ever experienced it?
What is a surprising or unexpected interaction you've had?
When have you felt listened to? When have you listened?
Do you feel connected by technology? Why? Do you have a story that illustrates this?
