Minimum Viable Post

Sitting here with a whisky, thinking about the overload of consumption and communication, and our relationship with time. I wish I had more separation between me and the world - tailor the instantaneous nature of netcomms back to emergencies. I wish people just communicated by photos and postcards in the mail, each picture being a thousand words and all that.

What would Minimum Viable Post look like, just to let people know you were thinking of them, a slow-time visual version of Yo! maybe? I like zink printing - you don't have to buy ink and there's little waste. I wonder if you can get bigger zink printers than my little one, but in the meantime, maybe I'll just stick a small photo onto a larger piece of card. Minimum.

What about non-urgent comms as a form of gift culture?
