teal deer and rethinking netspeak

One of the most interesting things about growing up with the Internet has been tracking how the Internet grows up in its own way, and seeing the influence of that growth on its language. As a frequent user (read: Internet addict) since adolescence, the revolving door of frequently used acronyms has been pretty consistent in the places I frequent online (although it all depends on which communities you visit and who you talk to). Given how big a role the internet plays in our lives – whether through work, at home, or for other reasons – the change in language reflects more than just style; it also indicates on a smaller level how language changes to suit user demand.

free range writing (or: how the internet can make you a writer, but maybe not a Writer)

There’s something glamorous about writing. Or, at least, the image of what a writer should be. Sitting somewhere with a notebook or laptop, chipping away at a magnum opus or the Next Great American Novel. The status of writing in the cultural imagination is all about the glamour.
