    1. Publications & Presentations

      @wiobyrne - The folks at Marginal Syllabus have done a pretty good job curating pubs and presentations on open web annotation and educators' use of Hypothesis.

    1. In a 1915 letter to his publisher, he stipulated, “the insect is not to be drawn. It is not even to be seen from a distance.”

      Kafka did NOT want readers to draw Gregor the Bug.

    1. “It seems that many people search or browse digital documents,” he writes, “but when they need to have in-depth reading of some documents, they will print out and then annotate printed documents” (2008: 62)

      This is me.

    1. F or Z

      This study is very well done. I find myself using the F pattern often--and I wonder how it compare to print readers (#eyetracking). I also wonder how this might change with optimized font size, spacing, column width, etc. For example, writing this annotation, Hypothes.is is squishing the window and giving me a shorter column (still wider than would appear in a standard magazine that's been formatted to make reading easier).

    1. The reason no one’s reading War and Peace is, Shirky asserted, because it’s “too long, and not so interesting.” Instead of mourning the loss of the “cathedral” reading experience offered by a great 19th-century novel, we should be adapting to the “bazaar” culture of the internet.

      Literary novel as "cathedral" and Internet as "bazaar." Reminds me of a chapter from Literacy in American Lives (Brandt) called "THE SACRED AND THE PROFANE Reading versus Writing in Popular Memory."

    1. a number of other methods.

      Tom's work with Voyant (which I saw him present about at NCTE a few years ago) got me thinking about different ways we can use numerical data about reading and writing in the English classroom.

      Students can copy and paste text into a website like (http://readtime.eu/) to get an estimate of how long it would take to read that text aloud -- great for rehearsing with scripts or speeches.

      I love how some blog themes (like @wiobyrne's at https://wiobyrne.com/futures-of-digital-scholarship/) automatically calculate the "read time" of individual posts.

      Programs like Citelighter (https://www.sylvanpaper.sylvanlearning.com/success-stories) can provide data on student writing, such as number of sentences per paragraph, or time spent on different stages of a writer's process.
