From blogging, texting and facebook, the inter-connectedness of the online world and people is amazing. I grew up hand writing thank you notes and letters to special friends. Our guilty pleasure back then was the telephone. You know, that plain, vanilla land line that no one had to call from after the earthquake. Yup, that one. I still have mine. I use it as an answering machine (which we didn’t have back then — usually the answering machines were us kids).
