“What’s your email address?”, a business contact asks. And I say, “I don’t have one. But, you can contact me through your preferred social network. LinkedIn perhaps?” Silence. He looks at me as if I was from the dark ages, hesitates, and says, “What do you mean you don’t have an email address? Everybody has one.”
I’m transitioning out of email. I’ve just begun and I know it will take time before I accomplish this crazy feat. But, why in heavens name am I doing this?
I’m a blogger. I’m also an online media consultant. I do virtual community management. I love engaging with people online. I share anything that can help other people to make their lives better. I speak my mind.
The power of speech is something I hold dear to my heart. At the same time, I also respect privacy laws and don’t condone to cyber crimes. The Cybercrime Prevention Law has its pluses and I support it but when it threatens the voice of the people, then that’s another story.
