âoeI hate to sound like a Luddite, but this technology is a poor excuse of an academic tool,â said Aaron Horvath, a student in Civil Society and Public Policy. âoeItâ(TM)s clunky, slow and a real pain to operate.â
âoeMuch of my learning comes from a physical interaction with the text: bookmarks, highlights, page-tearing, sticky notes and other marks representing the importance of certain passages â" not to mention margin notes, where most of my paper ideas come from and interaction with the material occurs,â he explained. âoeAll these things have been lost, and if not lost theyâ(TM)re too slow to keep up with my thinking, and the âfeaturesâ(TM) have been rendered useless.â"
