Do you think some things get invented out of order?
I think it’s weird how texting is becoming popular after cell phones were mainstream. If you think about it it seems like first we would have been texting. Then an amazing new technology that allowed us to speak directly to a person would have been introduced. Instead it went something like this:
telegraph>standard mail>telephone>email>instant messaging>cell phone>texting
The history of communication is so out of whack. We went from instant morse code messages, then a step back to pony delivered mail, then forward to the telephone, a step back to email, then forward again to IM, then cell phones, and now (in my opinion) a step back to texting. What is going on?
