I have a new techno-toy, a netbook. Now, I will type on the train. Will it make my writing any better? Will it make my commute any better? I’ll let you be the judge of the first and I’ll keep you posted on the second. I hope it will add to my blogging prowess ?!
I had a recent comment on one of my blog posts that I should include more video links in my blog, because there is too much to read. I started this whole blogging adventure four years ago – to improve my writing. So, if I find a good video, which enhances the message of the blog, I will put it in. But, for the most part, this is a blog of prose and if I’m inspired and very, very lucky…poetry.
I also hope to read books on my netbook – ebooks and audio books I download from my favorite public library. (The truth is I have never met a public library I haven’t liked.) The Fairfax County Public Library uses the Overdrive software to deliver ebooks, so I will begin with that. I also hope to be printing a lot less – so I can now read journal articles on the train on the netbook, articles about how to help students and faculty with mobile literacies. Ah, biblio-irony!
In this increasingly mobile- technology-enhanced world, I am now a mobile writer and reader. But, I keep thinking how do we afford all this mobility? And what are mobile thoughts? And what are my mobile aspirations?
