On Reading

January 29th, 2009 by Noam Berg

The questions raised on Tuesday have me thinking a lot about reading. I’ll get into that more later*, but for now here are some interesting articles that relate variously to reading, ebooks, literacy and technology:

Is Google Making Us Stupid?

Is Stupid Making Us Google?

People of the Screen

*I’m going to try something a bit different with this blog from now on. Instead of just typing whatever comes to mind when ruminating about some aspect of my thesis, I’m going to write it down as a proper, well-considered essay before I post.

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
