I REFUSE to use this thing called “email”… Really??


Pinterest is a child, Twitter is a teen, and Facebook is probably into it’s college grad as far as social networking sites and our means of communication are concerned.  Email however, is one of the elderly.  What I mean to convey is that email is NOT a new technology.  Therefore, it most assuredly would seem incomprehensible for anyone who has the means to access, if not to own, a computer to not have an email address.  However, ONE delegate in the Virginia House of Representatives  Johnny S. Joannou refuses to create an email account.  He only accepts and sends telephone calls and written letters (um this is called “snail” mail)…

Dude, it is 2012.  The world is going to end and you won’t even have created an email address, REALLY??  Well, okay perhaps the Mayan predictions will not come true this year, but you will still continue to greatly inconvenience people?

I’m not sure how a person of reasonable power like this man uphold his position to his townspeople as well as the other 139 delegates in the House.

How does this work?


About madie m.

Hello, my name is Madie. I'm a born and raised Norfolkian, took the popular public school route, (Larchmont Elementary , Blair Middle, Maury High) and am currently finishing up my Second year at the University of Virginia. In Charlottesville I am involved in many media extracurricular activities including writing for the Arts and Entertainment section of UVa's Cavalier Daily and a morning news broadcaster on one of the area's most popular radio stations, 92.7 KISS FM. I am currently majoring in French and Economics at the University and minoring in Media Studies. I love learning about the happenings of new technologies as well as new music. I think it's incredibly important that we all keep up to date with the rapid developments of the technological world so as not to find ourselves lost in the dust. But if you're not into searching the tech sections of news sites and other sites like Mashable.com and TechCrunch.com, no worries, that's what I'm here for. Just check out my latest "digital trend" and you should be safe. Apart from the music and tech scene, I enjoy running, practicing yoga, cooking French cuisine, and doing whatever else might give me a laugh on any given day!
