There’s a reasonable amount of debate about whether or not the way we communicate sometimes — through IM programs, texting and sometimes just with pictures — is a good or bad thing. But at this point, it kind of doesn’t matter because it IS the way most of communicate, at least some of the time.
And if you think that some of your best communication ever is done via text, you might be into this idea for the next big thing: The TXT Book. It’s an app that lets you covert a group of text messages into a print and paper scrapbook, photos included. You choose the text and images, and then the app lays it out into a printable form that let’s you preserve the best (or the worst, up to you) of times into a forever format.
