Great email robbery

The initial euphoria surrounding email …

Has long since passed.

The bigger story is what it took away.

In the same spirit that original Coca Cola got renamed “classic coke” in a bid to add new products that would expand the brand, the handwritten note got relegated to the dust heap of the antiquated delivery system called “snail mail.”

And I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I was at first smitten with the promise of email back when it was first rolled out. To be able to type a letter, as opposed to handwriting it, was completely upping the game. Or so we thought?

The truth is I miss the halcyon days of the handwritten note.

Email sort of stole it from us with out saying a word.

That’s some pretty substandard communication from what was supposed to be the ultimate communication device.
