You forgot SMS, Chat, blogs, email, P2P, VOIP, etc.
These are all things any ten year old kid can do.

The ONLY thing we, as hams, bring to the table is the ability to use radio.
If the internet is working, we are not needed.

 I know I'm gonna get flamed for this but, let's not forget we can use
Echolink or remote desktops or telephones or even instant messaging to
help in our quest to improve this fine system.

 Also, an added thought. With all the new users of RMS Express, they will
 not know that there are FIXED FREQUENCIES in use for such things as
 Peer-Peer operation and messaging. This needs to be promoted within
 THIS forum and/or as a trailer to each message, along with all the other

 Everyone should know that there is no need to treat RMS Express like
 you would when running PSK31. It is impractical.

 By giving the "watering holes" visibility and fair promotion, everyone will
 know right where to park and enjoy the developing system. It doesn't
 take a lot of frequencies, maybe just two or three at max on each band?
 This can accommodate a lot of active stations while employing a
 "Time Share" principle.

 Just some addition thoughts I thought I'd throw into the stew.
