AN interesting comment..
I wonder if the nature of email and how it gets read has any effect on
Think back to expensive dialup days.. you'd dial up, download the batch,
and then hangup. So you'd go through all the mail (almost like a
digest) before responding.
Now zap forward and you're reading on an iPhone, which tends to promote
a more "interactive" style of usage.
