I like e-mail the best - although the advantage of IM is that you get instant feedback - so the whole conversation sticks tightly to the curves of what exactly you're both interested in.  But it doesn't tend to be as deep.  Mostly I notice there are so many more things I can say when I'm writing instead of talking. 

I've brought up ideas in writing that are much more complex than what I typically speak.  Due to the fact that any given syllable can not come out - even though I've sent the signal to my mouth - or it can come out bass-ackwards.

Weirdly enough -  actually knowing the other person a long time makes it easier.

This is an interesting documentary and ethnography of the history of the web as we know it today.

Seeing the way that computers and us have both had to adapt to each other has really cemented my sense of computers and us having a symbiotic relationship.

We feed them electricity and allow them to reproduce.
They allow us to type, create art in new ways, become immersed in video games, and communicate with other people with computers at far distances.

It makes me feel awed - a little like I'm playing with fire.  :)
