Computer-less communication

image: Departments header Your comment that, from the survey results, you can "safely assume" that everyone is wired really ruffled my computer-indifferent feathers. It is possible, wonder of wonders, to have a busy, happy life with more than enough intellectual simulation without owning a computer. Remember?

Luckily, I don't always have to resort to "snail mail," as you describe it, if I'm in a hurry. There's a fabulous invention by means of which one can communicate, often immediately, actually hearing a warm human voice, without anyone running the risk of a virus or invasion of privacy. I recommend its use.
