Is E-Mail on it's last leg?

I'm an e-mail addict. I love to send, receive, read, collect, and become updated as needed via e-mail. Although, it seems that there is a generational divide when it comes to e-mail verse Web 2.0 apps like Instant Messenger, Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter. So why should I start using these other apps instead of e-mail?

Well, I guess I'm an old curmudgeon when it comes to switching my communication tools. Here are a few reasons why I'm staying put with e-mail.

1- I can save and catalog e-mails. This really helped me out during tax time when I needed to prove a couple of things.

2- I don't need to know, instantly, about the e-mails I send or receive. If I have a pressing situation or issue...I'll use the phone.

3- My clients and friends hardly ever use these other ways of communicating. There's that generation divide again.

I have used these Web 2.0 apps. What advantages do they really have over e-mail?

Let me know.
