OK, Jeena, you like the computer!
Yes, I do.
OK. Talk to us about computers.
Well, I go on the computer a lot and I talk with friends
through AOL instant messenger. And I just moved from my
hometown to Sacremento so it's a good way to keep in touch
with old friends.

Yeah. Do you learn about computers at school or on your own?
I picked most of what I know, I've picked it up, through, ya know, the years,
and some at school, like keyboarding and such.

OK. Do you have a laptop or a PC?
I have a PC. A Compac.
Do you like your computer or do you want a new one?
I want a new one cause I think I screwed mine up and it's a little bit slow now.
OK. How long have you had your computer?
I've had it for about 3 or 4 years.
Oh, yeah, that's pretty old for a computer. Yeah, so do you talk to your friends every night by e-mail?
Yeah, yes I do.
OK.
See going on and you know the gossip.
So nowadays, do high school kids talk by e-mail more than phone?
Uh, most people talk by either e-mail or cellular phone. You know
a lot of people don't use their house phones as much, and a lot
of people have cellular phones.
