James Shelley says farewell to social media. And, while there are a lot of people writing about that these days, I wanted to highlight this passage in particular:

Moving ahead, I will use email as my principal means of communicating and organizing personal endeavours, initiatives, and projects… Why? Email is peer-to-peer, distributed, non-proprietary, and adaptable. It is, as far as I can tell right now, the best ‘social platform’ presently at our disposal.

I’ve always been a fan of email and agree with this sentiment strongly.
