Texting and connectedness

31% of American teens send more than 100 text messages every day of their lives (Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project).   Did that statistic surprise you?  If you’re a parent or are close to a teen, probably not.  What does it say, besides that service providers are getting wealthy? In twenty years we’ll probably say it meant nothing worse than what our parents’ generation said about us when we were teens.  That is, that we didn’t pay attention to anyone but our friends and we were difficult to connect with because we always had our mind somewhere else.

I get jazzed by automation, big data, and blockchain tech. Business, technology, and fitness are things I understand. Scotch, wine, food, and fiction are things I appreciate.
