Texting Beats Emailing

I realize that’s a big statement and that its not entirely true.

But more and more, I find myself texting instead of emailing

And I see it with my kids, my wife (the gotham gal), the woman next to me on the train right now, and people walking down the street.

Texting is fast, relatively noise free (for now), and with the advent of better phones, its getting easier and easier to do.

Texting lacks many of the tools that have grown up around email, its not archivable (unless you use twitter to text), and it’s plain text, no attachments, no graphics (unless you use mms).

I see that as a big opportunity.
