One technolog that I haven't adopted is text messaging. I must admit, I don't get it. Why not just call someone? O.k., enough grumpy old chat, but I came across an interesting post today by a secondary teacher who instructs students to write their marginalia nots in IM. And that makes sense to me (empowering them to use a "cool" language with which they are comfortable).
But I, for one, would certainly need a translator.
