Email is Not IM

Indication that you use IM too much:

When typing an email, you quickly type a sentence and then press “Enter.” You frown in frustration when it does not suddenly disappear into the chat box. After a few seconds, it dawns on you, “oops, wrong technology.”

    Of course, there is the reverse, where you type something, then look to insert the address before hitting send, or you hit enter only to see yourself on a screen.

    Best, and keep on blogging.
