.musecast Episode 12: Reading Confessions

I’ve made oblique references to book series outside of my normal reading preferences in my Twitter these past few months.

A trip to Best Buy to get a new UPS, combined with my needing to get a new cell phone and a tablet computer soon, have me thinking about tech stuff a lot now, so I figured I’d talk a bit about my history as a gadget geek and how I’ve really gotten away from that stuff in recent years, but I really need to be more aware of it because I need to know what sort of stuff my students are using.
