Is texting ruining the art of conversation?
I believe it might be. Doesn't help w/spelling or grammar either. That's not the point of this article, though. How far are we going to go to avoid talking to people? Even a leisurely phone conversation w/friends and relatives seems to be waning.
I've always thought e-mails were a good way to keep in touch. Am beginning to think that's becoming a dinosaur, too. Texting, twitter & FB seem to be the only way people 'communicate.' Sound bites. And, it seems, unengaged brain bites. Is this, as the article mentions, an age-related thing? IMO, it might be. I admit to advanced age. :-) Forgot to mention forums - but at least we use a lot of words to express our thoughts. Some too many. Guilty!
What do you think?
