“The future is already here. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.” --William Gibson (NPR, 1993)

In Future Babble, Dan Gardner argues that most expert predictions about the future are hardly better than random guesses. Participants on this panel will buck that trend by focusing our attention on the emergent issues of the day, the future that is already here, across a wide range of topics of interest to the Computers & Writing audience. Those topics include but won't be limited to open access, copyright and intellectual property, digital composition, virtual spaces, the book, tenure and promotion, digital humanities, scholarly publishing, multimodal composition and pedagogies, and gaming across the curriculum. Members of the audience will be invited to participate in this crowd-sourced prophesying.

Hosted by the UM Sweetland Center for Writing, the 2011 Computers and Writing Conference brings together composition teachers and scholars and those in related fields who work with digital technology. This program is free and open to the public. For more information about the Computers and Writing Conference, please visit
