My son's BYOD for the new school year
For the uninitiated, that’s “Bring Your Own Device”. A quick explanation of Will’s circumstance — lots of identified medical problems, including what can loosely be described as “motor dyspraxia”, that is, a severe problem with fine motor skills. Handwriting has always been very difficult for him, even though expression has not. We decided this year ...

The Future of Book Editing: Resistance is Futile | The Smell of Books

A smart and almost obvious take on the future of editing — it is digital and onscreen, as books become increasingly ebooks.
