  179. 179. “Watching from the outside, Twitter is like the dumbest thing you’ve heard of: “Why would anyone want to tell others what they are doing in 140 characters?” <br />And yet to dismiss Twitter is a mistake because it’s an incredibly powerful tool for your personal learning and connecting with others.”<br />(Sue Waters, http://suewaters.wikispaces.com/twitter, @suewaters Original quote: Alan Levine)<br />

  193. 193. I Dream in Twitter (listen to the podcast http://www.box.net/shared/static/gqkaej08ww.mp3) I dream in Twitter in 140 characters that cut off my thoughts before they are complete and then I wonder, why 140? Ten more letters would serve me right as I write about what I am doing at that moment in time, connecting across the world with so many others shackled by 140 characters, too, and I remain amazed at how deep the brevity can be.<br />
  194. 194. I find it unsettling to eavesdrop on conversations between two when you can only read one and it startles me to think that someone else out there has put their ear to my words and wondered the same about me. Whose eyes are watching? Twitter is both an expanding universe of tentacles and hyperlinks that draw you in with knowledge and experience and a shrinking neighborhood of similar voices, echoing out your name in comfortable silence.<br />

  202. 202. Readers’ rights<br />You have the right to read in exotic settings. You have the right to move your lips when you read. You have the right to laugh or gasp out loud and choose whether or not to explain.<br />
  203. 203. You have the right to throw any book on the floor and jump up and down on it (the Dorothy Parker Rule). <br />Rights of readers<br />

  211. 211. What if you were the one, the only one, with the chance to do it?<br />What if this is the critical year for even one child?<br />Read to them.<br />Before the time, before the chance, is gone.<br />
