Well, my knowledge is pretty limited, but from what mantis and Patrick
(both of whom seem to be in hibernation) have told us, Wolfe doesn't
even use email. Many people his age do sometimes use email but get
flustered by the Web (i.e. checking archives, etc.). It's true that his
background would seem to make him more comfortable with technology, but
in my own experience with older writers
they can get crankily technophobic no matter what their background.
There is also the strange m/f thing that someday I will write a little
piece on.
