  • 2. Why are we here? http://www.flickr.com/photos/bitzi/230188091/in/faves-librarianbyday//
  • 3. Transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fijneman/2971210465/

  • 11. It is no longer enough simply to read and write. Students must also become literate in the understanding of visual images. Our children must learn how to spot a stereotype, isolate a social cliché, and distinguish facts from propaganda, analysis from banter, and important news from coverage. - Ernest, Boyer
  • 12. Transliteracy is not a destination
  • 13. The future is here it is just not evenly distributed, – William Gibson
  • 14. … broadband Internet service in the U.S. is not just slower and more expensive than it is in tech-savvy nations such as South Korea and Japan; the U.S. has fallen behind infrastructure-challenged countries such as Portugal and Italy as well. – Scientific American
  • 15. Not every member must contribute, but all must believe they are free to contribute and that what they contribute will be appropriately valued. -Henry Jenkins http://www.flickr.com/photos/zombizi_rip/1781535606/
  • 16. The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. - Alvin Toffler http://www.flickr.com/photos/meredithharris/2129929046/

  • 21.
    • I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies: 
    • Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 
    • Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 
    • Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things. 
    • -  Douglas Adams                         
  • 22. Sometimes I forget that my world is not the mainstream (yet) - Eric Nehrlich http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2152/2051756510_c0138daf6e.jpg
