I was just interviewed in WIRED magazine by Geekdad. Truly, I am tickled by how it came out.
Also, now that I read the final product, I wonder if by wearing this hat of advocating for literacy in this type of format (it’s my first time in this publication), it’s sort of a good “hit ’em from the flank” approach to advocating for teaching, kids, books, education and all the stuff I frequently speak to. In other words, it’s a ton of the same message which often flies out of my pen and mouth yet it’s re-packaged and in a different forum.
Sometimes, I admit, I often feel a problem of those who are “speaking on behalf of literacy” spend too much preaching to the choir. Indeed, literacy matters a ton. However, those who often hear how much it matters are people who often already appreciate how much it matters.
How do we break out of the bubble?
Hey, ya gotta swing the bat, right?
