David Pogue writes a technology column for the NY Times. While I don't read his blog every day, I do get the weekly e-mail with updates of new technologies (ok, toys) coming out with a brief review. While some of the content may seem boring (why Camera X is better than Camera Y, he has a way of keeping it all fresh and interesting.
I was laughing out loud (er, LOL) at this weeks post The Next Generation of Online Shorthand. He suggests some new online shorthand items. Some incredibly silly and useless like this:
12OF — twelve-o’clock flasher (refers to someone less than competent with technology, to the extent that every appliance in the house flashes “12:00″)
Then there are some really useful ones like:
WDO? - What are you Doing Online?
GI — Google it
WLF — with the lady friend
SML — send me the link
CYE — check your email
You definitely need to check out the whole list. I could see myself using a bunch of these in casual conversation. He even has a section for you iPhone users.
That's it, Tom (MBLO) signing off.
