Happy Birthday Dave!!!

Camels With Hammers‘s webmaster extraordinaire and occasional contributor, Dave Smith, turns 32 today.  My previous forays into blogging were so fundamentally inhibited by my programming illiteracy that I can honestly say that this blog, in so many of its most successful features would simply not be possible without Dave’s volunteered efforts.  He has really made [Read More...]

Are We In The Midst Of A Literacy Revolution Unseen Since The Greeks?

A Catch Up Day

I’ll be spending the rest of the day working on my dissertation and teaching.  I’ve moved many of the recent days’ posts to the front page in case you missed them during my flurry of constant posting during the last 4 days.  Also there is a long list of blog posts in the right hand [Read More...]

Did You Know You Could Blog From The Airport?

I never dreamed of such a thing—but here I am doing it. Now if only I had something urgent to say that I could make a real post out of this. Nope, nothing’s coming to me.  So, I’ll just take this chance to thank everyone who reads this blog.  It’s been a blast seeing the [Read More...]
