The real impact of hackers...

I was happily chatting away with my great friend uwog (Marc Maurer) on #abiword this morning, when my 15 year-old daughter looked over my shoulder and asked:

"How come you talk like a teenage girl on the internet?"

Well that kind of blew me away and I thought about it and realized that that..

Teenage girls talk like us!

All those LOLs, ROTFLs 313313 -speak etc came from us :-)

So no matter how much cool free software we make, at least one substantial impact we've made is to influence the way Generation Y talks on the internet :-)
