Think back, way back, to a time when you wanted to communicate with someone you would like to get to know better. You look up his or her address in a thick book of thin, white pages (delivered once a year to your doorstep by the sole phone company). Having found the address, you pick up a piece of paper - stay with me now - and a pen. You write a greeting to the person who has caught your attention. You place said greeting in an envelope you seal and affix a stamp to, before placing in a mailbox down the street.
