(4b) Kasarda’s Law of Connectivity: Every technology meant to circumvent distances electronically, starting with the telegraph—the original “nervous system of commerce”—will only stoke our desire to transverse it ourselves. For every message we send—whether by phone or e-mail or some handheld fusion of the two—there’s a chance it will lead us to meet face-to-face. Facebook friends drop in to and become real ones; stray tweets on Twitter breed followers, contacts, and business trips. Ergo. trillions of connections yield billions aloft. The more wired we are, the more we fly. Not less. At the current rate, the Internet will render business travel obsolete at about the same time it replaces paper.
