Is there anyone except me who gets annoyed by the use of the word
"communicationS" - i.e. communication with an S on the end?

 

As my colleague, Wendy Parsons, pointed out when I was working at CSIRO
almost 18 years ago... this use of the word generally relates to cables,
wires and similar infrastructure.

 

Perhaps, I am just getting old and cranky?
