Like a scarce piece of snail mail, it gets our attention. A story lies within the envelope and thus we feel compelled to spend more time with it.
But another email augurs the birthing of threads, as it speeds up the time it was suppossed to save.
So time keeps on slipping, as technology speeds it up into the future. If you want to slow down time, write a letter. Consider paper.
