Okay, since /. rejected my story, I'll post it here.

As a telecommunications geek, I was surprised and a little bit saddened to learn that Gordon Matthews, the man who invented voicemail over 20 years ago, has died at age 65. Gordon was a fairly prolific inventer, and the article reflects a little on his history and opinions on the way his invention has flourished and been used. Love it or hate it, you have no choice but to recognize the tremendous impact that voicemail has had upon the way we do business and our personal lives as well.
