this is counter-intuitive, til you actually think about it
dont-leave-me-a-voicemail-unless-youre-dying
(http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/10/etiquette-redefined-in-the-digital-age/)

this is also kind of useful

i like the way the etiquette & ways of using the technology are evolving fairly intelligently...

There's a special circle of hell reserved for people who click 'reply all' in an email to dozens of people to say 'thanks' or 'OK'.

actually i think what i like about those articles is how standard politeness has had to be updated because the tech has enabled these new forms of communications

i remember that ny times post when it came out and subsequent comments/responses, and i agree with the point about how technology has changed things, but there's a slightly obnoxious undercurrent of self-importance in his argument that i find annoying.
