For people just above my generation, text messaging is overwhelming. I am truly amazed at how seemingly impersonal means of communication are used for such personal things.
The problem lies with me; I have judged that text messaging or twitter-ing or whatever else is not personal. The twittering couple would obviously disagree--they would even say the opposite--that the proposal was personal, since both obviously used Twitter often.
I wonder how many other things I determine to be 'too' something. Especially when developing and engaging college students, that judgmental attitude keeps me from learning and relating to them.
