xoxosms: an Internet-born love affair
"These days, the stories we hear about kidz and the technology are often cautionary tales: strangers! sexting! But xoxosms — wants to tell a different, more salutary tale: about (young) people forging relationships that may start as virtual, but are very, very real." - Breakup Girl
