Paper Trail

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)


Once upon a time, communicating took a great deal of work. Paper was made by hand, writing was done with a handmade pen and handmade ink, and every word was handwritten. Printing presses allowed for multiple copies, but early type was hand carved, hand-set and the pages of text were pulled by hand.  Nowadays in our so-called paperless society, children learn to print then go straight to “keyboarding.” Cursive writing is becoming a lost art—will we have to have special classes in creating a signature? Or will those unique scribbles of identity disappear as well?

A word about blogs

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)

For all of you out there faithfully following my blog, you may have noticed that some older posts have just reappeared as new posts.  I am working with wonderful advisors back at Grinnell on sorting out some issues with the blog, and as either of us goes back in to an old post and makes edits or adjustments, that post then becomes a "new" post.  I apologize for the confusion! 

Hong Kong Adventures

For the last two days, we have been hosted royally in Hong Kong by friends and colleagues. They have given us glimpses of Hong Kong we would likely never have found on our own.  And they have shared their friendship which is always welcome when traveling.

798 Art District in Beijing

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)

Anyone who saw the Olympics may have gotten a sense of the sophistication of Beijing. Whatever TV can show, it’s nothing compared to the lived experience in China’s capitol city. From its wide boulevards, to trendy shopping areas seemingly without end, to skyscrapers that appear to spring up overnight, Beijing is a city relentlessly on the move. Compared to Nanjing, everything is bigger, wider, fancier, though Nanjing has the edge in pedestrian, bike and motor scooter traffic. Beijng is a car, bus and metro culture.
