Thanks yahoo. Disclaimer: I do not work for yahoo. I do not own stock in yahoo.
I do yahoo.mail and flickr. I pay. Forget when I started. I've been online since CompuServe and the 8086.
I'm older, a boomer. I use emails for letter writing - 250 words or more. Before the internet and email, I wrote fountain pen letters to my mommy and my unrequited love. I don't twit. My cell does not have internet.
I like the way the study was structured. Thanks for the background information.
I see email+internet+hypertext as today, and the future. I learned HTML and CSS and do plain text emails, as well as zips of small hypertext docs, 5 or 6 files - *.html, *.css, *.jpg, and/or *.pdf. To me it's cheap, portable, and reusable. I don't understand why more people don't spend a few hours to learn how.
I also do hamburgers at home. And I go out, both plastic tray and white tablecloth.
I'm not an el cheapo, an environmentalist, or a Luddite, but to me, email+internet+hpertext is low dependancy, long lasting, and local archives which are easy to search. So ... why not?
As for longer, later responses. I don't care - to me, at least it's a step up from lurking.
