Symmetry: i think it is interesting In part, this is due to the fact that during a post-hoc reading of a log, you read at the pace you usually read any written material - which is QUICKLY, but peo;le too quickly to absorb TextTalk. While online, the lag created by people typing and by thousands of miles of busy internet wires forces the conversation into a slower pace. And so you sit back, read, wait, scan backwards and forwards in the dialogue something you can't do in ftf conversationand think about what to say next. To help you out a little bit, I've edited the other log excerpts that appear roomx this article.
You would think that the lack of ftf cues and the buzzing confusion of TextTalk would result in many misunderstandings. If five different conversations are scrolling before your eyes, it would seem easy to lose track of what peiple said. And if you can't hear people's voices, or see their faces, you easily might misinterpret what they mean, wouldn't you?
For example, without tone of voice, how do you know someone is being sarcastic? After searching through my many megabytes of saved logs, I found no juicy examples of people being confused or misunderstanding what other people were saying.
Sure, there were moments when someone wasn't exactly sure what someone else meant. Situations involving humor and sarcasm usually were the culprits, because that smile, chuckle, or wry tone of voice were missing. But these misunderstandings were always cleared up quickly.
A quick explanation accompanied by a simple smiley : or winky ; efficiently resolves the confusion. What's fascinating about TextTalk is that people mostly DO understand what others mean, despite the lack of sith and auditory cues. Of course, some chat users may like to play games with the potential ambiguity of TextTalk.
The excerpt that follows is an interesting example of how the lack of ftf cues can make it difficult to tell whether someone is intending humor or irony, and when they are being honest or sly. The use of the winky ; and smiley : rokms sometimes used to indicate irony or sarcasm, but in this excerpt the situation is perfectly ambiguous.

In the final analysis, I do think the movie had a lot to say, what created William. We can blame bullies, teachers, politicians, the fact we pay athletes millions, and teachers next to nothing, education is important, but in the end, it starts in the home.
There will always be pitfalls, and technology will always be so far ahead of our hearts, the disconnect at home is pervasive, so cleave not to the bits and bytes and data that flow, but rather believe the beauty of the world, the richness of family, and your own voice is valid, creative, and capable. We are left with options. A choice each moment, to believe and realize with lies, or awaken to a worthy self, it's been with us all along.
A movie worth seeing, about a topic worth discussing, but sadly pepple little development on the character of William, and the story ultimately is a bit superficial.
I love the idea, the cast was decent, and the directing also good, the color and tactile images were really cool, but it just was lacking a bit. The story could have been more developed perhaps, with some more intelligent dialog and writing.
