To two too 2!

I read an article tonight from the New York Times, Texting May Be Taking a Toll.  While it talked about the physical problems teens are having from too much texting, I started thinking about the changes we’ll see in the English language as a result of all the texting done by teens today.
Will they drop the different spellings of “two,” “to,” and “too” and replace them all with just the number 2?  When texting, people use so many shortcuts: 2, r, u, LOL, ROFL.  The question is whether or not we will see language change.  I realize language is fluid, and has always been going through change, but I’m wondering if the changes we are seeing in text messages will force some drastic changes.

So, 2nite I’m thru here, and I’ll say GN!

Social Media

I went to a Social Media presentation and discussion at the Denver Technology Professionals meeting.  Besides great networking and meeting others, the speaker, Drew Shope, gave an excellent overview of social media and how little time is needed daily to get your name out there, and how great it is when everything is centered around one element.  Thanks, Drew, for sharing your knowledge!
