Saying I Luv U For Valentine's Day

from the waste-no-time dept

theodp writes "According to the WSJ's Jeffrey Laslow, love letters ain't what they used to be. Passionate essays penned on Valentine's Days past have morphed into bursts of IM and e-mail affection. Stacie Harb doesn't seem to mind. She treasures her boyfriend's 37-word declaration of love, keeping it in her phone's saved messages. 'It's not some drawn-out, 10-page letter professing his undying love,' Harb says. 'That would be creepy.'"

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
