Are you Textually Active?


And here is the piece on Text Messaging.

Click here to listen to "Are You Textually Active?"


This is another example where I employ literary theory to read and decode various seemingly ubiquitous signs.

I am very active. But not quite as active as some other people I know :).

Erin said...

These are good. thx

Dan said...

Yup. Totally active.
It's amazing to me, the more I listen to lit theory, that the ubiquitous, quotidian things do 'lend themselves to being' 'read.'

it's such a cool way to record ideas and experiences. texting rules!

tina said...

There is always a bigger text that informs the seemingly little texts. It's cool to have these in close proximity to one another. thx

Nicki said...

And I also liked the many 'lexical' uses of the word 'text.'
Textual activity is becoming a high-frequency word :)

textual activity is so much more than SMS-ing, n'est pas?

Some people communicate better textually, like me. Texting is a godsend for my telephonophobia proclivities.

Texting might just be one of the best things of the new times.
I had never thought about the 'behind-the-scenes' of texting, though.
Again, thx!

Being textually active and sms-ed the following:
'Wanted 2 tell u that appreci8ed the piece.'

I bet the 'appreci8' thing scored me points.... ;)
