I carry at least 10 unread ebooks with me everywhere. Nestled into that collection are two newspaper subscriptions with content I read and share with Twitter every day. I also share annotations from the books, from course notes, from campus Acrobat files, and from edited correspndence. The e-book industry is my daughter's game and it is running on a fast-paced pitch. The Kindle (pictured) is driving some of this success. But the Nook and the iPad also play their parts. For the first time in 11 years teaching first year students how to slot into a Media Writing world, I can confidently set down a practical assessment that culminates in an e-ink product. Readers of my blog will see the results as early as October 2011 and will be able to be among the first thousand who buy a group product for less than five dollars a pop. Proceeds will benefit the Pen & Pixel Exhibition in May 2012.
