Technology does affect written communication. Text messaging. Emails. Instant messaging. We're all guilty of using one or all of these forms. It's all woven into the fabric of our daily declarations that we proudly wear like a caped crusader's utility belt...using it at will as the situation dictates. It's all a style of shorthand that criples our writing abilities making us lackadaisical leaning on spell check like a crutch. Which technology do you use the most?
