David Crystal is one of the big names in the "language" world (teaching, linguistics, research, futurology etc...). He rightly deserves our ear and his many works like
Language Death, The Story of English and The Encyclopedia of the English Language are must reference books.
Here he talks about how language is changing. See this nice article of his about text messaging for more....
Also - this video introducing Global where he talks about why English is THE global language.
