Interesting article.  One odd thing just jumped out at me: Dr. Perry refers
to going to the mailbox and getting a letter from a friend.  That was in
December 1987, less than 25 years ago.  Right about that time, I was
transitioning to email as the primary form of written communications.
Within a few years we no longer got paper mail from friends, other that
Christmas cards, which I still send out in paper form.  Can you imagine the
latency we used to suffer, when you had to write out a letter by hand and
send it through the post office?  It is hard to see how you could even
communicate that way.
