I twit, you tweet, we all queet

Mark Prensky argues here for the digitalizing of universities in the sense that it is time to get rid of physical books (not their content obviously). He cites the recent example of South Korea’s plans to digitalize all its primary and secondary schools material by 2015 as an example to follow. Makes sense really. I would still miss the feel of a physical book but maybe coming generations will never miss what they have never known in the same way I have no longing for quills. http://tinyurl.com/6n2rklt

Speaking of resistance, El Pais had an article yesterday titled: Please, let me disconnect! The article looks at the pros and cons of being constantly connected and amoung the conclusions is that it may shortly be fashionable not to tweet but to desert twitter. I know people who have already done that: don’t think they realised they were fashion trail-blazers though. http://tinyurl.com/c3p58gy
