The paperless world.

The paperless world is fast becoming a reality. This innovation blogged on David Warlick's blog is well worth looking at.

Livescribe is a paper-based computing platform. The website complete with animation boasts the following features:
  • Listen to your class lecture by just tapping on your
    handwritten notes.
  • View & listen to your notes on your PC and search by keyword.
  • Email your written & audio notes to your classmates or study group.
Have a look and see what you think. Personally I want one. Saves me using all those bits of paper and writing and rewriting and rewriting and rewriting.

WITNESS and video

Just came across the WITNESS web site. Their motto is SEE IT. FILM IT. CHANGE IT.

The power of change is in the hands of the individual. We don't know how much time we have on our journey on this Earth. We have an obligation to make a difference.

Technology once again can be used to give a voice to the voiceless. Blogs, podcasts and videos are just three ways this can be done.

Combine this with the OLPC project and you have a platform for any child to tell their story.
