The end

just coffins
It’s so good to read about progress on the New Literacies Sampler (here), but I keep on wondering how the “Handbook of Research in New Literacies” is getting on. Anyway as you can probably tell, I’ve been trawling through the blogs, noting that Dr Kate has miscellaneous piles (you ought to see my study, Kate!) and that Infocult covers an article in the Washington Post on wikipedia - “Unlike, say, the Encyclopedia Britannica, Wikipedia has no formal peer review for its articles. They may be written by experts or insane crazy people. Or worse, insane crazy people with an agenda. And Internet access.” OMG this could de-stabilise knowledge in a serious way…is this the end of civilization as we know it?
