To state the obvious, history has shown that we did not all start out the same. The means to communicate and travel have become easier. It seems only natural that we have a standard way of exchanging information so we can all get it done, communicating that is.
However, who is to dictate the standards? If we stay with a more traditional/formal communication style then we start restricting creative flow? I wonder if the unknown author of Beowulf would insist that we standardize our communication in Old English? Perhaps E.E. Cummings would say we stop wasting our time with the caps lock key? Would a journalist report that we need to be brief, be bright, and be gone and if so should we be teasing each other with a snippet only to have us wait for 11pm?
Are we adapting and evolving our language? It makes me wonder what groups of free thinkers were struggling with when they sat around trying to standardize smoke signals or the mores code? Is there a magic fix to standardizing social media communication or is the subject a tired cause when in reality we should strap ourselves in and ride the fun roller coaster that has already begun.
I’m just saying.
