Social Tech Etiquette: Is Voicemail Rude?

Fascinating blog in the New York Times on how digital-social technology is transforming communication etiquette.

In this day, is it rude to the receiver to leave them a voicemail? Should you just text "call me" instead? When is it appropriate to call someone on the phone?

These are some of the questions tackled in the article, and in the blogosphere in response to the initial story.

Opinions range from "don't call me unless you're dying" to "I miss the lost art of the phone call."

Are these differences only generational? Or is there also a degree of tech literacy involved, where we match the communication tool (voicemail, email, text) to the message? What do you think?
