At my brother’s request, I recently set up an email address for my niece through jonesling.us, just like our own kids do.
She’s so excited about email. She checks it multiple times per day and sends me emails as fast as I can reply. We’ve been having a very slow conversation for a couple of weeks now, which is really pretty cool because I didn’t get a chance to talk with her much before.
Now, if I could just get my own kids interested in email again. They mostly ignore it, probably because the used to sign up for everything under the sun and they now experience the scourge of the internet: spam.
