Christianity in the Digital Space
Monday-Wednesday this week I’ve been at a symposium in Durham, looking at Christianity in the Digital Space. As this included meeting up with people I’d only ever met on Twitter and Facebook, and as my avatar for those pages had changed to this image (see right) over the past couple of weeks, I decided the easiest way to identify myself was to wear the KCCO t-shirt at the conference, and it certainly worked well! Wearing a LOUD slogan on your t-shirt, particularly one that so many people have heard of, makes it very noticeable, and I got many questions as to the significance and history of it!
New York Times
Well, you can’t really have missed that I was in the New York Times on 5th July, but I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to see the real thing, rather than just the online version. Much as I live much of my life in the digital world, there’s nothing quite like “dead-tree” publications! So here are pics of the front cover/the article from the NYT, which my landlady’s beautiful friend in New York saved and posted to me!
Don’t forget that there’s a competition to win one of 10 copies of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On‘ by 20th July (and hopefully my Twitter account @drbexl will be unsuspended by then!), so enter, and tell your friends! Good book!
