A revelation from Library Journal this week:
Steve Bell writes that a poll on a college campus showed students don't like to use e-mail and some won't use it. Too last century. Too low-tech. Too not texty.
Given the convenience of text-messaging, I'm not surprised.
I'm just perplexed that people, students included, can't be ambidextrous, tech-wise, so to speak.
Bell looks at this as some kind of indication that students also won't take the time and trouble to do in-depth research on projects.
Not sure that's a valid leap to make.
His underlying message, though, seems spot on: communicating at every level requires very simple systems.
