Hi Austechies

I've come in a bit late on this discussion (I've been away), but it seems that 
one of the things that prompted this lively interchange might have been my 
article "What if your readers can't read?" in the latest Southern Communicator. 
The topic is indeed very thought-provoking, and challenges a number of 
strongly-held ideas. (And it's not really about online vs paper!) The article 
is based on a presentation I made to the TCANZ Forum in Auckland last year. 

If you haven't read the article in Southern Communicator (or in the February 
STC Intercom magazine, where it was earlier published), you can find it online 

I will be reprising the original presentation for the AODC Conference in 
Melbourne in March (details at, and I hope this will generate 
some hearty discussion and introspection too.
