Reading through his blog I think he did a pretty good job of communicating using English. I understood it. And he does include this disclaimer:
"Hint: English isn't my native language, so excuse me if anything is wrong written or misspelled. Feel free to ask if you don't understand anything"
You know what? I missed seeing that disclaimer. I was skimming through the article and somehow missed it. So that's my bad.
Now the 15 year-olds using text-speak as English.....Them I am worried about. Also the recent college graduates who don't understand there is a difference between "their" and "there"....Them I am very worried about.
Ohhhh yeah. They make me weep for the future of the human race.
