It's not the personal way that I was brought up with, and I wonder if I have the same connection with my friends as I had before. Is sending a quick email the same as picking up the phone and saying 'you know, you've been on my mind lately...I wanted to hear your voice.' Do you think we're losing a little bit of our humanity because of all this technology? Let me hear your thoughts.
