http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/boingboing/iBag/~3/iLwXlYf0nrU/the-long-slow-death-of-the-lan.html This is US data, reporting that 34% of Americans now don’t have a landline. When I arrived at Roborough, people looked askance when I said I wasn’t going to have a landline and if they wanted me, my mobile was the solution. I have to say it works. There may occasionally be delays in responding to a message, or I may forget to turn up the volume after Mass, but I’m way better at mobile voicemail than a vicarage answer phone. Younger members of the congregation simply text me. You know it works. One of my churchwardens does insist on txtspk though, which does look a bit passe these days, but we love her so she’s forgiven. The congregations aren’t yet up to live tweeting but time will tell.
