Now the technorati of our time will conviene on New England to discuss it’s eminent dimise. (The USPS posted a loss of 8.5 billion dollars in 2010 alone.)  On June 15, 2011 a distinguished group of technology professionals and scholars will descend on Arlington, Virginia for Postal Vision 2020 in hope that they will plant the seed that will grow into a sustainable model for the US Postal Service. The potential loss of the U.S. Postal Service has far reaching implications, for the entirety of our nations history Americans have benefited from a means to exchange information owned by and for the benefit of all Americans.
