My doctoral research shows that there is much more to texting than abbreviations and phonetic spelling: Texting is a creative, expressive, and practical outlet for a surprising range of uses. In short, texting deserves much better press than it usually gets! It's great to see a book like Read Between the Lines address texting in such an entertaining and informative way.

We believe that public safety must be prepared for and utilize technology that is available today and in the future. Cell phones and text messaging have become a mainstay in our society; thus public safety must adapt to this new avenue of communication. Because we must reach out to all of our citizens, text messaging opens many doors. We are very proud of our small role in becoming the first in the nation to provide this service to the citizens of Black Hawk County, Iowa.

I like the flexibility texting offers. I can ask a question as I go along in a class and get students to respond quickly and en masse. All I need is the number they text to, and I don t need pre-prepared Power Point slides with the question and a choice of answers.
