For real

Yahoo! is running an IM contest, with prizes. (Now long-distance relationship is a sport.) Three couples stay in touch via Y! Messenger; you get to eavesdrop. Which is fascinating to me, since I never got the hang of the whole IM thing: call me a dinosaur.

The exchanges are enitirely devoid of content. This illustrates my theory that in an electronic human-to-human communication the most important field is neither body nor Subject, but Date.
