kinds of fluency

Put into writing today some thoughts that I delivered at the talk on Thursday; when it came to watching students, who were in some cases able to move pictures or movies from one place to another, yet still unable to type a sentence onto a weblog, I realized that there were kinds of environmental fluencies, and that the concept of fluency really to some degree is driven by the medium one is using to communicate. The oral fluencies, discourse conventions, hmms and ahhs and eye contact, may become less important as people meet and do business more by chat, and are not bound to one geographical location in their development of live networks of friends with similar interests and abilities. Read it and tell me what you think.
