Orality, the most natural way for humans to communicate, is inclusive and participatory, highly interactive, and instantaneous. Back in 1982, Walter J. Ong coined the term 'secondary orality' - a way of interpersonal communication made possible by modern communication tools, that is neither classically oral nor literate. This talk will explore if and how digital communication tools are developing into communication enablers, allowing us to go back to our roots and engage in conversations instead of creating written correspondence. We will look at how different tools, such as email and chat, facilitate group communications, and how new tools such as Google Wave support our natural way of interacting with each other.
