I always liked the homing pigeon.  Trouble is it only goes one way and once home you have to carry it back to its mailing poing.
Hmmm.  Perhaps we could put them on the pony express? Grin

I don’t really like instant message, I like email way more better than phone call or instant message, lack of immediacy is good, since I’m so busy and with email I can respond whenever I get a chance, under no pressure of responding immediately. And I usually reply ppl’s email in a timely fashion, but not immediately at this second. For me phone call lacks privacy, anyone can overhear the conversation unless calling from home, I don’t’ really have much time at home, only have BB with me for instant receipt of email, so prefer email the best way of communication, that’s quite and private, I like to type email on the subway or bus or train from BB, and I don’t disturb anyone surrounding me. Now some NY or NJ buses even disallow phone calls for passengers’ on bus, because of bad connection of cell phone, everyone is talking so loud, very disturbing…email is the best!!! Yah!!!

I agree, it is the way of the future, but I think it will be done from our phones more and more.

As I see it, the biggest threat to email is not an alternative technology but SPAM.  Without effective filters it is all but useless

Communication via FB has definitely increases - I just don't trust it for anything personal.  I shudder to think what they are doing with all that information.  Shure they have to respect your personal privacy but can they mine it without using your identity?

Perhaps you should start another - if you use a fake name it could get back to you...
