On my way to UNC for @CHATfestival #chat16. Looking forward to talking about generous thinking this afternoon!

Hope to see you there! https://twitter.com/smalljones/status/705388023219941376

Oh no. I’m so sorry. :(

RT @MLACommons: Almost 200 of you have taken our literary trivia quiz so far, but @cohenss holds the top spot. Can he be beaten? https://t.…

There are a select few books that have had actual cognitive effects on the way I see the world.

Not just on the way I understand it, but on the way I perceive it in the first place.

Some of those effects have been disorienting but short-lived, as in the case of Amis’s Time’s Arrow.

Some have had a much slower burn, like Infinite Jest.

I just finished reading @dexterauthor’s Version Control, and it has altered my vision in ways that are both intense and, I think, durable.

I need everyone to read it so we can discuss: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0307907597/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0307907597&linkCode=as2&tag=plannedobsole-20&linkId=IU6BKILDCGDZXD7R

I am 100% with you. Not a fan overall, but that book really messed with my head.

Another in that category: Pynchon’s V. These books $$sometimes briefly; sometimes durably$$ changed my sense of the mechanics of the universe.

Others gradually coming to mind: Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.

It’s not for nothing that all of these are in varying ways about time, and how time affects who we are, or can be.

.@dexterauthor So. Much. Both intellectually engrossing and emotionally wrenching, which is a hard combo to pull off.

I can imagine. I saw it in its New York run in 1995 & it was transformative.

Not to mention: Blair Brown! Victor Garber! Paul Giamatti! Robert Sean Leonard!

Ooh, I bet. That would be terrific fun!

All I could think to do when I was done was make sure EVERYONE I KNOW reads it, too.

This is what CORE can do. Share your work! https://twitter.com/MLACommons/status/711295730225389569

That does not seem as though it would turn out well.

Some other changes as well $$punctuation and the like$$.

But the key thing is a major change in approach, a focus on the big picture of how & why.

The whole thing is focused on teaching and learning. I hope it smooths lots of paths for instructors!

Did that ABC correspondent really just say “the best way to stop an attack like this is to know about it before it happens”?

Congratulations! Fantastic news for a great project. https://twitter.com/clancynewyork/status/712666002417393664

I never in my 20s went to the emergency room absolutely convinced I had TSS nope not even once.

How fantastic: a new award to honor community-minded capacity building! Nominations open. https://twitter.com/CLIRDLF/status/714443306126745604

Thank you $$and @digitaldigs$$ for a great visit! https://twitter.com/UB_English/status/714593510578642946

The new approach to MLA style, and why it matters. https://twitter.com/LAReviewofBooks/status/714853457539293184

“Academic writing becomes academic…precisely when it exposes its process to future correction.” In @LAReviewofBooks: https://lareviewofbooks.org/essay/the-future-of-academic-style-why-citations-still-matter-in-the-age-of-google

Thanks, Katina!

Thank you! But I’m curious what you see missing.
