It is very rare to be in the company of someone who has had an impact on the life of every person in the world. I had this honor and privilege during my recent trip to San Diego: A private meeting with Marty Cooper at his ocean-front home. Marty is the inventor of the cell phone, which course has gone to become everyone's interface with the world around them. By 2013, there were more cell phones in the world than people. I really enjoyed our conversation and exchange of views on the future of telecom.
