Email is for Old People, from Stephen’s Lighthouse … I’ve heard this before several times.  I’m not quite yet convinced. Time will tell, I suppose. 

 

Warner Music CEO Says War with Consumers Was Wrong … this one is from the “DUH” files.

About Rory

I make my home in the central part of the Garden State along with my family. When I'm not working as an Instructional Designer (focusing mostly on Web-Based learning ... and other eLearning technologies) or researching something, I'm found at home playing computer or video games. Among other things, I volunteer as a choir member and catechist for 8th graders at my parish.
