The 160 Character
Describe the purpose of EA in one 160 character SMS message
(including spaces, punctuation and carriage returns)?
Rationale: Pragmatically, if you can't describe the purpose of
EA in one short sentence, you will not get the ear of the people
required to utilise it.
No rambling, ivory tower, intellectual monologues here. Just
post your 160 characters.
