Formality in the digital age

Technology: blessing and a curse. Students are very familiar, or too much so, with social media and the age of the “instant”. Instant replies, for everything. Patience is lost, and so is formality. The lovely comic posted below is intended to be funny, which it certainly is. The sad part… I’ve gotten an email like this from a student. The art of the formal mail has died.

Special thanks to the insanely funny and creative folks at http://www.phdcomics.com
