Teaching Machines

Although we’re still unsettled in Seattle – we sign a lease on an apartment on Tuesday – I did manage to get some writing done this week. Word count: 10,077. Total to date: 70,333. (I’ve set a goal to have 125,000 written by the end of February and to spend March polishing everything into an acceptable draft.)

I also (finally) finished going through all the photos and notes I took at ETS. (So now I can start working on the sections pertaining to Ben D. Wood, the Typewriter Experiment, and IBM’s test-scoring and teaching machines.)

Other Writing


I did most of my usual end-of-the-month activities: updating my CV and travel plans. I didn’t do some of the backups as the external hard drive I store those on is still in the old apartment. I also spent an inordinate amount of time setting up new accounts (Internet, insurance, electricity, etc) for the new place.


I started working on a talk I’ll be giving in a few weeks at Austin Peay State University.


This past week: Seattle. Upcoming week: Seattle.
