Spring fashion trends rarely have a technology bent to them, but it seems
as though this year will be a bit different. We’ve been reading scads of
stories on the iWatch, the Pebble, and Google Glass, so wearable computers
are the latest happening thing. Which is why we posted a new technical
communication poll on whether wearable computers will impact tech
It has sparked some fascinating discussions both on the email
list<> and
in the comments section of the poll introduction. You’re welcome to
continue the discussion and take it in some new directions, and do cast
your vote as well.

Craig Cardimon, our own Duct Tape Writer, curates Tech Writer This
and as an added bonus, provides a thumbs-up review on Marcia Riefer
Johnson’s new book, Word
We invite you to check out both articles, and remember to join us for the
Fast 5 interview with Marcia on Tuesday, April 30, at12 pm (EDT). Two lucky
participants will receive an autographed copy of Word Up! You can tweet
your questions before or during the video chat using #TWFast5.

For those of you in the Northern hemisphere, we hope you get to enjoy the
glorious spring weather, with minimal disruption from the last of those
April showers.

Have a great weekend!
