The Postman Doesn’t Ring at All

The blog Collateral Damage has an opinion article by Marianne Thamm – The Postman Doesn’t Ring at All: the Death of Snail Mail.

Perhaps we will see some sort of hipster or steam punk revival in philately as postage stamps become increasingly rare and collectible. Stamps could still provide a platform for counties to celebrate cultural, scientific, artistic and natural uniqueness.

Stamps are to communications what candles are to lighting a room. We might not need them right now, but one day, when there’s some sort of global traffic jam on the Internet, we might just have to start licking and sticking again.
