How did I miss the New York regional finals of the LG National Texting Championship earlier this month? 300 contestants banging out messages with their thumbs on tiny keyboards. Who is the winner — the man with the Golden Thumbs? It is a 14 year old high school student from Leonardstown, Maryland — William Glass. He claims to send 750 messages per month (or 25 a day). I keep thinking about how useful speed texting would be during exams.
