The Disappearance of the Office Phone Ring



Interesting article in NY Times about the disappearance of the ring of the office phone. It is true, I rarelly get voice mails at work, it seems to be all email these days. Ironically I have set my phone's ring at work on "old fashined tone". It reminds me of my grandmother's office at the Sofia University where I spent most of my childhood babysat by professors inbetween their lectures. There was a lady, I think her job title was "typist" or "машинопистка" who was constantly typing on an old fashined typewrter with long manicured fingernails. Another sound that has completelly dissappeared.

Yes! Disappearing sounds...There are some lovely sound effects CDs in the Vancouver Public Library - very old fashioned - if you ever need some endangered sounds.
