jfruh (300774) writes "A bewildering array of communication mediums have arisen over the 15 years, from SMS to Twitter direct messages, and yet despite repeated claims of its imminent demise, e-mail maintains its quiet, no-fuss dominance over how we touch base with each other. Tech writer Kevin Purdy decided to do a week-long e-mail fast to see what he missed and what he didn't.
