Need To Get My Attention? Un-Spam Yourself. Call Me.

Or we can meet and talk in person. But don't use E-mail or Twitter. Unless, of course, you think that they may deserve a status superior to the mere tools that they really are: two tools out of many at our disposal for communicating and getting things done. Do see our somewhat lengthy but inspring and soulful "See Me, Feel Me, Call Me: More bodies and voices, please". Excerpts:

If you e-mail me about a truly great idea, and expect to develop or work up the idea efficiently in an e-mail discourse, and get a few juices flowing, I will tell you right off the bat you have gone insane.

Get the net.

What happened to vibes, voices, faces, bodies, winks, hand gestures, touching another's hand or shoulder impulsively, stares, grins, frowns, hand-written thank you notes, human electricity, NOT-typing, non-virtual joking, yelling, swearing, ragging and flirting, totally un-PC confrontation, intimacy and the "God-in-the-room" magic that starts with two breathing humans in one 3-D place? Or at least on the phone?
