I like the interactions between computers and old media. Like, can writing be the same if we put pen on paper or if we press buttons on a keyboard? And with writing I mean the process of it: the thinking, composing, revising of it. I like to think about writing, and how it shapes our thoughts. An epistemology, so to speak. But basically, I am a teacher who thrives seeing other people experience the overwhelming adventure of writing. Anything. Anywhere. In any medium. On any occasion.
