Hi, everyone. You can find my timeline here: http://courses.ats.rochester.edu/eaves/timeline/zogas/ZogasTimeline.html

I wasn't able to get the links working properly, but I'll keep trying.

I'm so glad you mentioned learning to use a card catalog! I remember the feeling of POWER that came with learning this esoteric system that gave me all the information I could ever imagine needing. I still feel nostalgic for card catalogs, and usually pocket a few cards that Rush-Rhees puts out as scrap paper.

I agree, that pdf files seem more official and appear to be more like "books" on your computer than text documents. It's interesting that you included pdf files in your timeline! Pdf files are harder to edit and are usually more than one page, which gives them a really "published" feel. Now, even just with reader programs, we can mess with pdf files more than before. (Is that true, or have I just learned how to mess with them???)

Pdf files and their associations might tell us what we think books are. Books are bound more permanently, and are presented in a way that you aren't usually supposed to edit. Is this true?
