Re: FW: [UD-PIG] Cellphone literature

Vince Raphael has written on the role of texting in recent Phillipine
political life.

Although I have written and taught on "film literacy" and participated
in research where the term "computer literacy" is widely used, all
metaphorical extensions of the term, literacy, have their problems. Cell
phone literacy (minus texting) can be replaced by the term "competence
in the use of cell phones." (Or am I wrong about that?) In so far as
some term like competence substitutes for literacy, the use of the term
looses value, or sneaks in some values of its own, unawares.
