Cellphones have restructured thinking

"Just in time" has hit the world. We do not have to plan ahead any more. My undergraduate son, if he wants to get involved in something social, just steps out and starts calling friends to see who is available and what they want to do. When I was a student, we had to arrange meetings and activities in advance. Even if you decide you want to go somewhere new, a GPS capability lets you find it.
Now with the new generation used to this, how will it affect business meetings, when someone can set up a meeting on the fly as they walk, and much prefers to do that.
