Back in our day, we didn't have your efficient ZIP Code system and automation, and complete addressing. We used our ink feather pens and wrote the addressee's name and town. Usually, that was enough. No wonder it took weeks to get my wife's letters from Philadelphia to Washington!
Now you have those fancy barcodes. It's amazing that a letter can travel so far so quickly. Now machines can read a barcode and figure out where it was sent from and where it's going and when it was sent -- and probably more things like the best time of day to throw a pole out and catch a fish.
What do you think about the intelligent barcode?
