voice-net

voice-net

Hackish way of referring to the plain old telephone system, comparing it to a digital network. Usenet sig blocks sometimes include the sender's telephone number next to a "Voice:" or "Voice-Net:" header; variants of this are "Voicenet" and "V-Net".

Compare paper-net, snail-mail.
