Here’s an interesting article about the death of the email generation by Chad Lorenz.
I definitely consider myself from the email generation. I still remember when I got my first email address in 1996 at my school computer lab.
I used to have a MySpace page for about two years until I closed recently. For the last 9 months or so, it was only there for show. I tell my friends and family that the best way to contact me is via phone or email. I really don’t need yet another place to go to look for messages (I’ve already got three email accounts).
Plus instant messaging doesn’t appeal to me. For the office, I personally think email is much better… there’s less ‘how r u doing?’ fluff. It gets down to business. If I want to talk to you for a long time, I’m going to pick up the phone and call you. Bam!
And let’s not even talk about texting! Wow, I guess this is a sign that I’m getting old, huh?
