What happens when the "thumbs generation" grows up?
Text is made for youth. They want low cost communication, gossip potential, and a way to fill downtime waiting for public transport. But while youth have special incentive to learn to text, unlike adults, it doesn't mean they will drop texting as they grow up.
A shocking scene this evening in downtown Wellington: a girl, maybe 17 or 18, texting as she was driving. I don't think it's a good combination. I'm sure she is far better at texting than me. But I bet I'm a better driver.
