Couple which are at opposite ends of the spectrum:

Texting seems utterly embeddedin the culture for anyone under 30 in the uk.

Can't remember the last time I saw a teenager who wasn't texting.

Did the spells work?

This kind of stuff is on the increase and pretty widespread already.

Just signed up here. Looks like a friendly and useful place too.

Background - well, spent 20 yrs in IT designing, building etc. latter part on as/400 stuff.

Left It 10 yrs ago, did some other stuff and found myselfbeing drawn into web development.
Currently working for a charity but still building sites - mostly, but not all - in wordpress.

That's quite interesting but, if you code for a living, fear doesn't come into it.
