[Air-l] Postal mail and e-mail

As an afterthought it occurred to me that to look at
the telegraph v. postal mail in Victorian times might
map in some interesting ways to the internet v. postal
mail in the 21st century. Because the real possibility
of multi-modality of communication strategies were
then available (for possibly the first time) during
Victorian whereas . . . 

now it's text, phone, email, chat etc. While it is
well off your topic, I have heard anecdotally that
parents are having good luck with their teenagers
through text vs. other communicative devices.

I can see we certainly got Michael going here! 

Cheers, Denise
