And someone came here through from my drawing of G. K. Chesterton's SUNDAY at http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis/ which is a wonderful site I've not plugged for a year or more, where artists have drawn their favourite literary character or author. Matt Howarth's Dick. Mark Crilley's Pooh Bear. Eddie Campbell's Hemingway. Bill Sienkiewicz's Dr Seuss. Heaps of them. It's as fascinating seeing who drew what as seeing how they drew it.
I was shocked (and fascinated) by the Telegraph story you referenced. Do you feel that this heralds the end of the written word as we (i.e., people who remember a time before email) know it? It may seem extreme, but the acceptance of "thru", "lite", etc makes me fear for the future.
That'd be the one about the young lady who wrote an essay in TXT? To be honest, I have no idea what it portends, or even how accurate it was. The essay might signal the decline and fall of literacy, or it might have been written by a bright kid who was bored and wanted to try something a bit different in a routine essay.
