As I carried the pizzas up the elevator, I read the coupon the delivery guy had been careful to inform me of, placed between the boxes. On the coupon in bold letters I was informed of the possibility of texting a word to a certain number to receive deals. I reflected upon this, the elevator passed the 12th floor while I did this, and thought of how far we've come, that we should be able to text things and receive more text back with our handheld devices. Never satiated, I long for the day we can transmit our voice, and hear the responses. But we're not there yet, no.
