Voicemail is Dead
At least according to this article. I have to agree. I have a landline that is predominantly used to buzz people in to my place. Other than that, I rarely, if ever, even pick up the phone. A quick look at the caller id, and if its not my front door, the caller is sent to voicemail hell, where I never check the messages.
My mobile is a slightly different situation. Again, I usually only pick up if I recognize the number, and voicemail can sit in there for days or weeks before I clean it out. Even then, a few seconds to figure out who it is and it usually gets dumped.
I wonder if my behavior would change with Visual Voicemail, like the iPhone has, although I doubt it.
Between Twitter, IM, SMS, and email, there are plenty of ways to get information to me that are integrated into my normal routine. Calling an external phone number and dealing with a linear menu system just isnt one of them.
