The people problems of communication

We solved the mechanical problems of communication and found out the real problem was people. I mean to say that these days we have phones that are always within reach, answering machines and voice mail, email, text, Facebook, Twitter, actual video phones, any number of ways of getting in touch with people, and we still fail to do so. We still don't respond to the messages people send us. We misunderstand each other or respond in anger or haste. The technology makes it faster to get in touch, but all of the people problems are still there.
