Doc Rocs!

Stop over at WritingOutLoud and give DocRoc a welcome to the Left Coast contingent of bloggers. I think I can safely say, there will be good words from this page. Already we have a pithy letter to the "PowerPoint is Evil" author quoted in a Fragments post the other day, and DocRoc's elaboration on the concerns of technology using people... an especially pernicious bondage when our children are the victims.

Fred, don't you believe that Doc missed an obvious contribution of technology to all teachers of English and Literature? Technology is the cause of wide dissemination of examples of goshawful English and spelling. To wit (a wide-spread chuckle bemoaning the spell-checker that you may have posted at one time, but which most recently came to me from a co-worker):
Eye have a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight for it to say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew!
