New literacies?

Carol's inner wrist tattoo is another example of an appropriated script. (And here's another lettered tatto in Tibetan). When did people first start to mark their bodies with words? Not, perhaps a new literacy, but maybe a newly discovered literacy.

Last week the government launched its e-strategy. Much tamer than the consultation document, low profile, and difficult to locate on the DfES site. No surprises, some investment... and I see relatively little on digital literacy, at first sight. So to compensate for the completely predictable, here's a curious blog with a very interesting tagboard on the side. Now that's what I call new literacy!
