Brad Templeton wonders what we should call those who insist on making heated cellphone conversations public.

As a side note, can someone with a Nextel phone confirm what I suspect: that you do have the option of holding them to your ear, and speaking into the mouthpiece directly. You know, like a phone. As opposed to “look at me, I have a walkie-talkie”, with the bonus feature that everything has to be shouted and repeated three times.

If there’s anything more uncomfortable than (as commented at Templeton’s page) hearing half of a divorce discussion, wouldn’t it be hearing the other side on speaker phone?

I’m throwing out “Nextroverts” as a suggested appelation for this subgroup.
