I Think Therefore IM

This Slate piece on the declining use of e-mail among the teen set, reminds me of a tongue-in-cheek chat I had with some friends a while back: If e-mail had been created before the telephone, how would the new device -- the phone -- be marketed?

Perhaps the lines would be something like these:

"No longer will you have to wait minutes, hours or possibly an entire weekend to get a message response!"

"Combined voice and auditory interaction -- immediately."

"Real-time instant conversation!"

"No more constantly having to type as you communicate."
