I thought this blog post was interesting, defending text based communication. I think she makes some good points, especially about emotional privacy. I know that I often can get very emotional - especially as soon as sombody raises their voice, which can give completely the wrong idea to the person about how I feel. Being able to communicate in writing makes that easier. It also gives you a chance to pause and reflect which we don't often get to do when talking in person.
