Commentary by Stephen Downes

Finally, the world is catching up to my own perspective on telephones. Kottke: "They text, they email, they IM, but increasingly the phone call is too intrusive of a communication option for many... "I remember when I was growing up, the rule was, 'Don't call anyone after 10 p.m.,'" Mr. Adler said. "Now the rule is, 'Don't call anyone. Ever.'" I have always hated that aspect of phoning people, that you would be interrupting whomever you called, no matter what they were doing.
