decade - something from trAce

Here is the notice from the latest project at trAce

Dear All,

I am writing to invite you to make a contribution to ‘decade’ (); an online writing project being launched this week to celebrate ten years of innovative digital activity at trAce Online Writing Centre, NTU. The completed project will take the shape of a writing 'quilt' of what I hope will be many different responses to technology and change.

The introduction to the project notes:-

“In the last ten years there has been an explosion of new technology, especially related to computers and the internet, and for some of us it has changed forever the way we live and write. As the trAce Online Writing Centre reaches its tenth anniversary, we invite you to reflect on your own personal decade of living and writing with technology.”

You are invited to contribute a brief statement of a 100 words to the project about the technology you love, hate or anticipate; and the ways in which technology has changed your life.

At the beginning of the project the quilt will be empty, awaiting contributions. But as time passes, it will gradually expand; weaving together the differing perspectives of authors from across the globe.

I look forward to your participation in this exciting project.

Gavin Stewart
