I tried to post this earlier, but the flaky wireless connection I have in this coffee shop crapped out on me, so I’m trying again. Not that I have anything too profound to post; in fact, that was kind of the point of the previous post, that I don’t have much to say right now. But here’s a few thoughts before I get back to work:
- Things seem to be kind of quiet to me on the blogs I read and various mailing lists, I guess because summer is (soon) upon us, and I also guess because of the upcoming Computers and Writing Conference, this year at Stanford. I decided quite a while ago that I could not afford to spend the time or money to make two trips to California this year, so I went to the CCCCs instead. In retrospect, because the CCCCs was cheaper than I thought it was going to be, I wish I was at C&W too. Oh well.
- Dr. B posted about something called Conversate that I’ll have to check out at some point. One of the problems I’m having right now is sort of exemplified by this potentially useful tool: how do I write about writing tools available on the internet for a textbook that isn’t liable to come out for at least two years?
- Mike has a funny post about an article in Inside Higher Education that you shouldn’t read. No, not Mike’s post– the article.
- I find this funny because I remember this to be the case way back when.
- I need to relocate to a coffee shop with a less flaky wireless connection; namely, Bombadill’s. The food and people watching are better in Ann Arbor, but the working conditions are actually better in Ypsi.
