The Email Generation Gap, Again
One of the topics that pops up periodically on university campuses is whether students use email. Within the university IT community it revolves around whether universities should continue offering email addresses to their students, since most students arrive with at least one email address in use.
Yesterday’s New York Times has an article in the ‘lifestyle’ section arguing that students ‘never’ read their email. I myself have not found this to be true – it seems to be their preferred method for dealing with ‘the man’ (taking myself as representing ‘authority’ in all its glory). But, as they say on the web, YMMV1.
Any thoughts anyone reading this might have would be appreciated – feel free to comment…
