There are ways in which the technology trend have been great for me. I'm a bit phone-phobic and am much more comfortable communicating by written word much of the time. On the other hand, I don't text and have resisted Twitter, in large part because I feel like I would have a compulsion to check them ALL the time. I don't have a fancy cell phone, partially for that reason. I don't want to retreat THAT far into technology.

(Which is also to say that I think a lot of this may help Scooter as he starts to use the computer and such more. Especially since he's had trouble expressing himself orally.)

Technology has helped L. tremendously--no doubt about it! I think personally I am struck by how little I talk on the phone relative to how I used to be...it was refreshing and wonderful to touch base with a friend' voice for a change, instead of just seeing the words.
