  • Digital literacy: buzzword or job requirement?

    Graduation season just finished and the air still rings with bad advice given to bored students. Calls for "digital literacy" filled many auditoriums as speakers unclear on the concept tried to hype technologies such as <a href="http://twitter.com/">Twitter</a> without understanding the technical details they struggled to explain.
