Quotation Corner – ‘Text Messaging’

‘It started as a message service, allowing operators to inform all their own customers about things such as problems with the network.  When we created SMS (Short Messaging Service) it was not really meant to communicate from consumer to consumer and certainly not meant to be become the main channel which the younger generation would use to communicate with each other.’  — Cor Stutterheim, inventor of texting, quoted in Wray, R. 2002
