Please tell me that no one has actually spelled out who as whu, or even puts a z in the place of an s. I really hope schools don't teach that so called "lingo."
I feel out of place in the tech world. I am a huge computer geek. I built my own PC, complete with 12GBs of RAM, which probably says enough. I work in a tech job- network operations for the USAF, and love it. I've always been good with computers. Thus, everyone expects I am good with all tech devices. Obviously, I keep up with tech news, as I frequent this site, but I just got my first cellphone earlier this year (I'm 22, been on my own since 18) and have made probably a total of less than 20mins worth of calls (incoming and outgoing). I often don't even remember to bring it with me, and nor do I need to as I barely use it. It seems most tech people probably don't take 10 minutes to write a single sentence with a cellphone. Hell, my 62 year old father is far more antiquated with cellphones, he's on his almost all day. I've definately been missing this wave of technology, but I certainly don't envy everyone else. Especially when you are texting someone while talking to me face to face. That is pretty uncool.
As someone without a cell phone texting plan I publically complain "Why would someone text me" every time I receive a text. No texts, por favor. As a University student I am in the minority, of course, but I'd prefer not to add more $ to the bill. 20 cents a text is criminal, btw.
I feel that texting is a quick and passive way to communicate with someone. It takes out the personal element of conversation so it is easy to do mindlessly. It has less of a chance of disturbing someone and it is a nice way to ease into communication with people you don't know well. It isn't time specific, so whatever you say could be read later or whenever it is convenient for the recipient. That said, I hate when relationships rely on text messaging. All relationships-- friends or lovers. I hate the feeling of trying to add real meaning to any text. And I hate it when people text more than they talk to people in person, even when they are around others. Also, random texts about random things are awesome.

My good friend went through a horrible break up with a girl who never spoke on the phone. She preferred to text everyone she knew and she was proud of it. She said that she has one conversation longer than 5 mins during the past 3 months.
Now there's something very wrong about that.
