What in your opinion was the best invention of 2007?And now, the end is near. This week, I've been answering questions set as part of a competition run by Science Week (and publicised by Damien) about technology. I've mostly taken a lo-fi approach with my answers (perhaps excepting my wish to own an internet radio).
Today's question:What invention has helped you most with your working life?I have had a few different career strands. And, being a indoorsy sort, all of them have been centred on rearranging the order of pieces of paper. But vitally, I also needed some way to contol those pieces of paper.
It's Science Week this week and to mark the event there's a little competition running. Details on Damien's site, but basically all a blogger need do to enter is answer a different question each day about science and technology. As the prize is a Nintendo Wii, which I covet but cannot justify buying, I intend to put my shoulder to the wheel and post throughout the week.
I wrote earlier in the week about some of the speeches and reports at the mediaforum symposium on critical media literacy. I'd like to come back to that today with some more thoughts. I can't promise that they're better than the ones I had earlier, but they did take longer for me to come up with them.
