What is old is new again...
So, a year and a half ago - I wrote about what I term 'IM speak'. The thread had been idle for a long time - when all of a sudden yesterday, it started getting tons of comments. So far - 40 new comments. From a readership I do not normally get :) High school students, from here.
All I know is I got linked to from their private discussion forum, so I cannot see the discussion that is causing them to come and read that entry - but come and read they are, a good 5% of my traffic is coming from their discussion board this morning.
updated a bit later
Neat - I see it became part of a school assignment to read that entry. Small world - I just spoke at American University as part of a class. Last week during spring break - the local Oracle Academy class came in and I got to speak to them (brought my kids Alan and Megan to listen in as well - the talk was about careers and how mine progressed - they had never seen me do my job, so this was a good first presentation to hear). Next month, I'm doing a career day in Brooklyn as well.
