Two indicators of change

Blogging is expanding according to Technorati:

\For more see Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere report. It reports on their survey of 1,000 bloggers.
And text messaging is growing too
CNET reports that Americans now text more than they talk. The article cites a report from Nielsen that, in the second quarter of 2008, U.S. mobile subscribers sent and received on average 357 text messages per month, compared with making and receiving 204 phone calls a month.
Of course “The surge in text messaging is being driven by teens 13 to 17 years old, who on average send and receive about 1,742 text messages a month. Teens also talk on the phone, but at a much lower rate, only making and receiving about 231 calls per month. The report even suggests that tweens or kids under the age of 12 are also heavy text users, averaging about 428 messages per month.” I can tell by my daughter’s bills!
Hmmmm.
