"We’ve recently discussed how customers have forcibly migrated business-dependent supply bases to electronic data interchange (EDI) via newer, cheaper and more efficient mechanisms with impressive results.
Oddly enough, the same thing might be happening with the fax. It may be a near-term fix on a path to better technology, but many companies are well advised to address the fax as a mission-critical resource of those partners who will use it until it pretty much drops dead."
Earth to Net heads: the fax is not dead. Do I hate to acknowledge this. Are we getting out of touch with plain reality, with the semantic web and all? Several layers are likely to coexist for a long time, and it’s my opinion legacy HTML is going to hang in there for decades.
