I'm working on a project for a masters-level class in Computers and
Writing and plan to expand it somewhere down the road for my
thesis/project. My general question is: How has e-mail changed our
attitudes toward writing?

Has e-mail changed your frequency or style of writing? Has it helped to
flatten or reshape hierarchies in the workplace? Eliminated work/memos?
Increased work/memos? Aided, hampered, altered communication between
employees? Has it spilled over to effect you OTHER writing?

Any response would be much appreciated. Thanks, Barbara.
