With all of the media hoople and buzz over the past few years about the net, most of it has centered around the web. And, I guess, there’s a reason for that: the web has the potential to be the closest thing to television since, uhm, television. But I want to remind you of a very simple, predominantly text based system that is much more powerful than the web.
It’s email, Jim.
It’s also speedy – it sure beats the US Mail. While you still can’t emulate sealed envelopes online to perfrection, it’s getting pretty close. Soon the US Mail won’t have a chance – email will do everything that Snail Mail can, and more. I’m very much looking forward to that day. -pm
