OLD TED new ted

Everyone now says the future is the touch screen. What about the no-touchscreen?

Marginalia habits and my digital life

"I was brought up never ever EVER to write in books; some people have annotation and marginalia habits, but I never have had. I don’t even talk back to print books; they’re just kinda dead, dead words sitting on dead pages between dead covers. Reading onscreen is different. If I’m reading something I like, I can del.icio.us it or blog it or Twitter it, do something with it. Because I am a producer as well as a consumer of onscreen text, I feel closer to other producers of onscreen texts, and I feel a certain license to talk (and sometimeshttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif yell) at the screen, treat the words as living things with a living mind behind them." Caveat Lector

I've always thought this as well. Since I saw the first blog and uploaded my first photo to flickr...

The world suddenly looked ripe for comments and feedback and marginalia. Now with Twitter and whatever's coming next, the world can easily add context to the content while adding their own content. There's truly room for it all on them internets.

Low Tech Ordinary Life

Heard about Footnote.com today. I guess they've been around for a while. Looks like a nifty service. Anyway, poked around and got reading the life story of Selma Eliza Day Lloyd. Had to keep reading until I'd read it through.

I ask myself this question once in a blue moon: "Will anyone care about the life I've led when I'm dead and gone? What will be left to uncover? What will be left to be read? Who will look for references to things I've done, people I've seen, met, married, sired, loved, wronged or done right by? Who? You?"

I've tagged this entry with places I hope will remember me long after I'm gone.
