Communication is complex. It requires more than just words to be truly effective. Intonation and inflection are completely lost in the translation to digital form and misunderstanding happens in their absence.
I get more frustrated every day with the terse, cold nature of electronic discussion. I need a cleansing period. As of today, I am removing myself from all personal online interactions by going dark for the next month. I can’t go 100% offline because I work remotely, so communicating with my coworkers will be the one exception.
If you are weird enough to desire my presence, give me a call. Or just show up at my house.
