Subject: NYTimes.com Article: Nu Shortcuts in School R 2 Much 4 Teachers This is a very interesting article. What is really funny is that my grand-aunt, who is nearly 80, is house-bound and spends a great deal of time on her computer. She has been e-mailing and "Instant Messaging" with her pre-teen great-grandson and has learned all of the current shortcuts used on-line. No generation gap there! It is quite funny because I frequently have to ask her what the different "words" mean.
