    Thomas, Thanks for the suggestion. Don't get me wrong, I actually like kids, but if I ever have a son I'll be sure to take your advice about getting him a BlackBerry and sending him to the third-world. I've never experienced fatherhood ... Is you suggestion something that is doable in the diaper stage? Sounds like a good plan to me. About your closing sentence, "Technology is wonderful." I certainly hope not. Otherwise my tirade series is not going to last long.

    I picked up a free blackberry at PartnerWorld last spring. I hated it because I was used to PDAs so I gave it to my wayward son. He's in Cambodia and Thailand, traveling all the time. It's great. My advice to you Joel is simple. Have a kid and then send him or her to a third-world country. Lot's cheaper than keeping them around the house. Give 'em a blackberry, and you'll never have to worry. If they text-message for more bucks too often, plug 'em into your spam filter. It's a done deal -- a great solution with built in plausible deniability. Oh yeah! What's he doing in Cambodia? See http://www.humantranslation.org Imagine building a website with a pda...... Technology is wonderful.

    Are you sure you want the miscreant's firstborn? I've heard text messaging is genetic... By the time the child is 6 they may be text messaging you!
    Once I have him/her, I won't let the miscreant's child have a cell phone -- no dessert for them if they disobey. Before you ask, no, I'm not a parent.

    There is a big difference between text messaging and email: Cost. I have 5 cell phones in my family, all Verizon. Verizon charges per text message. Therefore, I have disabled text messaging for all 5 phones. Email comes free with my ISP. chuck Opinions expressed are not necessarily those of my employer.

    Are you sure you want the miscreant's firstborn? I've heard text messaging is genetic... By the time the child is 6 they may be text messaging you! A thought just occurred to me. Perhaps the youngster in question is already 6 or more years old. Gaaahh!!!

    Text messaging has its place, for the most part conversations on the telephone are far superior. I live in the US and have family in the UK.

But it's superior; because some members of my family are nervous computers, or just don't check their mail frequently enough. I also video conference across the internet with some other members of my family, this is a cheap way to commence a VC without paying expensive connection fees but it's a sure way to page someone, at least as sure as phoning them to see if itís a convenient time. Apart from that, I also find the whole texting process a little over hipped, but I do think as time goes on it will become more and more useful as telephones and PDA's become more key friendly.
