Re: Book written in txt msg -

This was inevitable. I'm just surprised that it took so long to come out. I don't think that it's just the Finns or people from any country per se; it's simply a new form of communication for the masses.

If you're teaching any group of students this day (young or old) you have to deal with this in your classroom. Not only do I mean the incessant texting during class, but I also mean dealing with the texting language creeping into academic discourse.

You can see it as an attack, as an art form, or simply as a teachable moment. The choice is yours.
