The Velvet Blog predicts the future
Soon, there will be no written communication at all. People will communicate using facial expressions, from photos they took on their cell phones while looking in mirrors and uploaded to some Web service that succeeds Twitter and doesn't allow any characters at all. "Is there any milk?" will be shown by someone holding an empty milk carton upside down while shrugging and looking quizzical. "It's in the fridge, dumbass," will be conveyed by the respondent standing in front of a fridge, pointing at it and looking exasperated. Etc.
Can you prove that it won't happen?
