Love Online

“The exchange of love letters was central to the courtship of my grandparents (who were separated by the First World War) and of my parents (who were separated by my father’s service after the Second World War). By the time that my wife and I were courting, we handed our love letters back and forth in person and read them aloud to each other….The love letter was a residual form-though we still have a box of yellowing letters we periodically reread with misty-eyed nostalgia. Sarah and Henry’s romantic communications might seem, at first, more transient, bytes passing from computer to computer.” Henry JenkinsLove Online (Technology Review)
