On his Micro Persuasion blog:
Almost every white-collar job today requires good communication skills. There’s nothing new to report there. However, what is new is that much of the way we communicate today in business is in writing through email. So even if you’re not a scribe by trade, you’re a still a writer by default.
I would say something insightful about this – provide a value add, if you will – but I have a wedding to go to and I’m still in my pajamas.
