About half an hour ago, a PR person called me to start an online interview… I answered the phone and said, “Hi Rebecca – I’m ready to go!” and she was surprised that I knew who was calling. The reason why I know is that Rebecca had contacted me a few times to coordinate the event and her contact details were automatically added to my Google contacts, and synchronized to my phone.
