drinks tray graffito
The Daft Punk song Technologic captures the spirit of what Colin and Michele call the new ethos stuff in digital production: plug it, play it, burn it, rip it (full lyrics here) and the rest, seems to describe these new practices. Today I was in Manchester doing a keynote at the NAAE conference and it occurred to me to restate that, whilst I stick to my definition of digital literacy as primarily being about writing, I see that it only plays a part in larger texts; texts in which meaning is dependent upon the orchestration of multimedia semiotics. Anyway, in the end, I forgot to say that, so this acts rather like a postscript.
