The Poor State of Communication

9.5.19
You have to keep an eye on those troublesome elves.

It seems the quality of communication has been declining for some time. It goes across all disciplines; design, photography, writing— even standard business communications. The irony is that technology today has never offered more options for communicating— text, email, social media, etc. But send someone an email with 3 questions and see if you get a reply with 3 answers. I touched on typos and grammatical errors in social media posts in a previous entry here. I continually come across errors that not only register as mistakes, but actually change the intended meaning—and not in a good way. It’s now kind of an amusing hobby to see these (and there are plenty) and ponder which version is better— what I think they meant or what they actually wrote (and submitted).
