The future of Writing Conference

The Future of Writing Conference
This conference looks really interesting. It's being hosted at the Davis Humanities Institute/University of California. There are some good questions being asked and the mixture of digital artwork as well as papers offers an opportunity to explore the historical tradition of writing dealing with new mediums, such as E-Books, and interacting with the new media of digital artwork. I would be very interested in seeing session here that would deal pedagogically with the future of writing. With the continued interest of e-books and the ability to create hyper-linked texts, both for fictional and scholarly texts, while the basic themes of writing won't change the delivery of the text to the reader will diversify and change.
