How do Mountain View teenagers use their cellphones?

Uploaded: May 28, 2009
This week I went to the WCA (Wireless Communication Alliance) meeting at PARC in Palo Alto. Five teenagers spoke about how they use their cellphones and email. They texted behind their backs and liked Facebook. Brian Ogata asked the teenagers how they used Location Based Services - i.e. applications that use location. They liked to use maps, but thought that applications that shared your location were "creepy".

So I'm interested in how Mountain View teenagers use their cellphones? Are there any teenagers who love applications that share your location like Mountain View's Loopt?

Today Google announced a new communications platform called Wave. It has been designed in their Sydney office and let's people share information. There's a demo here. Take a look and let me know by commenting here on how you would use it.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
