This modern age has been bestowed with multiple forms of communication, most of them virtually instantaneous. We have phone, email, chat, text messaging (SMS), and other mixes and variants on those basic capabilities. For most people, this amount of connectivity is amazing and enhances life to an amazing extent. And for the most part, I think so too. But too much connectivity has its down sides, especially for people like me.
