We have a developed into a society in a hurry. Weâ€™ve created ways to connect and share in nearly live and seamless fashion. We demand high transfer rates both from technology and from human beings.
But, there is a gaping hole where transfer speed and the description of that speed in a timely manner has been ignored or neglected.
Either that, or Iâ€™m so fast Iâ€™m actually seeing into the future.
When something is happening this very moment, it isnâ€™t uncommon to say itâ€™s happening, â€œas we speakâ€. Itâ€™s a common phrase denoting the speed and timeliness of something occurring. Sure, itâ€™s only three syllables, but so is â€œlaugh out loudâ€, â€œbe right backâ€ and â€œgot to goâ€. All abbreviated for time saving simplicity as â€œlolâ€ â€œbrbâ€ â€œg2gâ€. For this reason, I believe that we should adopt the use of â€œawsâ€ to represent â€œas we speakâ€.
The applications are already handy in chiefly electronic personal communication.
In a text between two people:
Person 1: â€œAre you on your way to the office yet?â€
Person 2: â€œIâ€™m walking through the door aws.â€
Itâ€™s time that we embrace things that are happening while we are talking about them. I donâ€™t know who first loled, but I do know that there is a place in this world for aws.
