Snail mail, E-mail, Landline, Mobile phone, Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, SMS, Facetime, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Google+ et cetera, ad infinitum et ad nauseam.
The trend is to have as many of these at our disposition as possible. You get angsty if you miss one. What if somebody wants to send a tweet but I don't have twitter? What if I'm having dinner and someone wants to call me? I need to be available... We're always available, yet never approachable.
Making sure I keep up with this trend, I got the BBM app for my iPhone, just in case anyone wants to sent me a message there. Because, nowadays, you can never have enough.
