People are weird. Nobody writes, or reads, email anymore, because everyone would rather use instant message networks. But the most popular IM is MSN, which is the only one (well, there’s also Google Talk now) that won’t let you send a message to an offline contact. (Yeah, I keep writing about that, it’s a pet peeve of mine.)

Is the whole idea of contacting someone who isn’t there right now, of leaving them a message they can check out when they can, definitively obsolete?

Did you really let the terrorists spammers win?
