how much personal e-mail did you get back in the 2000? Sometimes we'd get 10 or 20 a day. Today, I probably get one to two personal e-mails a month. E-mail has turned into a mailing-list/notification pit.

AIM was something you use to have to sign on to; and tie up the phone line with. Now short messages are on your phone, and shared to groups .. instantly. Even older people rarely talk on the phone today, and we use to for hours as kids. It's a very different world.
