Great piece in the Times about the toll of texting (or text-messaging). Adults clucking about the sad state of affairs that their teens text all the time (and in the middle of the night!); and yet many of the parents are texting as well.
When I was a teen (oh-so-many years ago), our technology escape was music through a Walkman (the precursor to the iPod).
There has to be that separation between the generations, of course, as teens begin disengaging from the nest. Texting takes it to another level.
What say you?
