Are you watching what's happening in Egypt? Do you have any thoughts on the topic?

Ew, I haven't heard of flash texts yet. How interesting! I too was thinking about how Tweeting and FBing and texting has changed our world. I even heard someone liken it to the "Tower of Babel". Quit interesting imo.

Yep, I find it rather shocking some of the stuff that comes out of people's mouths. I constantly tell my kids..just because you are thinking it doesn't make it right to say it. Some things are much better off left unsaid.

Karla, I haven't seen much about it, but the big news here the last few days has been the blizzard. Maybe now that the snow is for the most part cleared away, other areas of the world will be in the news, again.

Cheryl, I really think it could happen here. Look at 'flash mobs'. Soneone texts friends who text others and on and on, to do something. There have been instances of shopping malls closing because the upper walkways couldn't hold all the people that showed up

What 'scares' me is that they used twitter and other social networks to rally the people to do this.
