History & Predictive Text

Predictive text will add a new challenge to the historians of our future. Before, reading through journals, we just muddled our way through the occasional misspelling or illegible word.

Historians will need to incorporate an understanding of querty, and the possible mis-adjustment contemporary predictive text programs can use for substitutes.

Haiku

Failure's abrupt edge,
Perhaps not downfall, rather
Rebirth of my hope.

sewn in Malaysia? Or was the cotton grown there? Curiosity...gets me all the
time.
