"The Traveling Raven Problem" by Ian Watson

First appeared in Daily SF.

Igar arrives at his job with Raven messengers.  He comes with ideas of his own on how to improve the job--using light and encryption.  The "corvomaester" points out how long this technology has existed and how foolish Igar's ideas are although the reader recognizes their modernity.
