  • “Students today depend on paper too much. They don’t cc Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2010 know how to write without getting chalk dust all over them. What will they do when they run out of paper?” (Anon – 1815) http://www.nikkikatz.com

  • ‘Squeeze’ text The competition was for re-writing the cc Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2010 Lord's Prayer for the mobile phone, using just 160 characters or less. It was judged for Ship of Fools by the Churches' Broadcasting Conference. The task itself was not easy. The traditional version of the Lord's Prayer is 372 characters long, so whittling it down to 160 characters meant cutting the prayer by more than half but without losing anything important. http://www.canada.com
