I recently emailed someone, “is there anyway we could talk with our voices to figure this out” before I remembered that I was sending that message over an actual phone.And that’s not just me. Everyone is focused on writing FIRST.

But still, it’s words. We are all writers, even if it’s just 140 characters at a time.The last time culture was probably so tied to writing might be the pre-telephone era of the late 1800s. In London, the post (yeah that’s right, I said “the post,” which impossible to hear in anything but a British accent) would deliver letters up to five times a day. It was common then to receive a message, read it with the postman standing there, and dash off a quick note for him to take with him. It’s not so hard to imagine Jane Austen dashing a quick “OMG — Mr. Darcy is SO EFFING CUTE. Enclosed: daguerreotype of kitten playing harpsichord.” [Keep Reading]
