The other day, after I gave an assignment and asked for it to be emailed to me, my students here confessed to never writing emails unless it is to "old people like professors," to use their words. The students ("the young") only communicate via IM and texting. Today I marveled at a student who was texting before class, and wished I had filmed it. It was like one of these speed Rubik's cube solvers. Kids these days, and all of that. Then later I read in Slate a piece about the death of email. Which means that I am not the only geezer who noticed it.
