Remember when all we needed was email and IM? Or just a landline phone?

It’s hard to say whether life is more interesting now, with all these ways to communicate with each other – or back in the day, just because it was simpler. Friendships were real, and you had to work at your relationships. I don’t know the answer – but I do know, being social and keeping in touch with anyone now typically includes joining or following them across a number of the services noted above. It’s a lot to keep track of…

I’m wondering if my email signature should just include *everything* from now on, to save people time trying to connect with me through all their other preferred networks. :)

Best regards,
Thomas
