Back in the day, before fax machines, you used to have to send a messenger boy out every time you wanted to get some paper from point A to point B. Today, fax machines aren’t even needed. Just send a gig of data over a broadband Internet connection and bamm. Job done.
The Associated Press wrote a great story today about what that spells out for bike messengers. In our own words here at LD, we would now call bike messengers Janky. They simply aren’t needed the way they used to be. Sure, I like Puck too, but I don’t trust him as much as WiFi.
