TYVM - That is useful.

Interesting, but more trivial than helpful. If I were to receive any but the most basic and easy to understand acronyms , I wouldn't understand it and would be quick to dismiss it.

Kind of makes the communication one-sided. It might be easier to write, but unintelligible for those of us without the latest text-speak SMSease dictionary terms.

My friend and I were recently talking about the prevalence of technology in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
