    so i was wondering.. with all the forms of communication available today, how do you know when to use what? lets see, we have email, sn, text messaging, instant messaging, chatting, ircing, forum posting, bulletins etc etc! i mean lets say you wanna call someone.. how do you know if you should

    A) text them what you wanna say

    B) multimedia text them what you wanna say

    C) record a message to save for later, then send them the recorded message

    D) instant message them over your phone via aim

    E) just end up calling them :p

    i mean heck, in our digital world we have so many options for doing the same thing.. it makes me wonder.. "jeez, how did they do it twenty years ago"...

    I prefer the pony express myself. If I need to communicate a bit quicker, I've found morse code to work well. Otherwise, I'll begrudgingly use iChat or Mail.app. ;)

    If I want a record to refer back to, then it's an email.

    If I want an immediate answer to a topic that covers a number of issues, it's by phone.

    People here in the office rely too much on email which usually means endless clarifying follow-up emails when an internal call on their extension can clear things up in a matter of seconds...
