I think its been mentioned previously on Foshiznik that Tim and I have a bit of a running joke about the “Sent from my iPhone” signature that my iPhone likes to pop on the end of every email just to show off that it is an iPhone. (I’m a little surprised that it doesn’t specifically say which model it is, for added showing off)
However, what came up in one of these e-mail conversations was that e-mail feels like a very old fashioned form of conversation. Think about it. When, in a non work context, did you last email someone? You normally would just IM them, “poke” them on Facebook, @ or DM them on Twitter, or even text them, but who emails people anymore?
I love emails. I like being able to say a lot more than I can via a DM, I like not being limited to Facebook, and I like that an email doesn’t care if someone is logged on or not.
I still love writing and recieving letters (written with a fountain pen on some lovely paper) but since I hate Royal Mail so much (do not even get me started on how much I hate my postman!), emails are a good substitute.
If you would like to write me an email, my address is hi (at) ceriselle.org. Tell me anything. Except about that funny scar on your bottom. I never need to know about that.
