10/30/2015 Text Messages: Impaired Communication

How often do you find yourself wondering if you may have simply misunderstood the context or meaning of a text message?


Most people are pretty adept at transmitting factual information – names, dates, numbers – to one another. But how about your feelings, wishes, understanding, concerns and decisions? That’s when things get messy.

Subjective emotions are full of gray areas, a fogginess generated by expectations, resentments, assumptions, jargon and past experience. We bring all of these elements to our communication with others.

10/28/2015 How Text Messaging Across The World Saved My Military Marriage

My husband and I text more than we have ever spoken. To date, we have spent more time apart than together.

When I think about talking to him, the first thing I do is reach for my phone. It is not to call him, but to send him a text.

Our relationship has been a little unconventional. We were together a year before he decided to join the military. Originally, we wrote letters when he was in basic training, then it progressed to text messages.

10/16/2015 Texting Wounds: Is SMS the Future of Sports Medicine

Sports are an enormously popular pastime; recreational sports constitute a huge proportion of participation in sports. And yet, likely due to the lack of attention placed on sports at the recreational level, injuries in community level sports garner little attention. More importantly, injuries from recreational sports often go unreported, creating a large gap in the store of information available on sports-related injuries.

This may not seem like a significant issue, but it represents a large problem for the field of sports medicine research. Researchers lack information on a large proportion of participants in sports, skewing the tendencies of their data towards more elite levels of sports participation, which may produce different figures.

Texting Your Way To College

The first example dealt with the problem of high schoolers who have been accepted to college, but don't show up in the fall Ȓ a well-documented phenomenon known as summer melt.

When the researchers followed up with the participants in the fall, they found that college enrollment among low-income students in the text-message group had jumped by 8.6 percent compared with the control group.

10/07/2015 History of Messaging

Text messaging has been around since 1985, but the history of messaging is much more complex.
