In the early days of this blog, Jenny Green did a really nice post Sand talk – and how to record it which was one of our first posts with – gasp – photos. It showed how she recorded sand stories using 2 cameras and a ladder.
Now you can follow the new Central Australian sign language project Jenny is involved in, Iltyem-iltyem ‘signalling with hands, using handsigns’ at the project’s new blog Iltyem-iltyem.
The content is great and the images are brilliant as a “how to…” Light years ahead of our old Movable Type blog, sophisticated, they are using tumblr. It’s the visuals of now. Whether it is the archive of tomorrow is the one concern – This week in Google EP.100 suggests that the tumblr posts aren’t easily exportable. I hope TWIG are wrong, because I’d hate to see that material disappear.
