Re: In the absence of a better medium...
How can you find fault in the marvel
that is the email?
It allows us to express ourselves succinctly
while, with the aid of a suitable tone,
affording us the ability to attach emotion.
Don't lament but rather embrace the removal of human interaction
and the associated awkwardness:
There is no uncomfortable eye contact,
no colloquial insertions; no 'um' or 'like'
no fear of mispronunciation.
You speak of better media,
I say look no further than your keyboard
or PDA penscreen or mobile phone.
You will find the best medium
right there at your fingertips.
