“[T]he passive voice is absolutely central to a smooth flow of information, and while its overuse may indeed be stylistically inappropriate, its random removal from a text will have disastrous effects.”
I am a student studying inclusive design at OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) in Toronto, Canada, technically officially graduated since the end of October. Unless something really bizarre happens, my convocation will be June next year (2015).
If you are interested in my thesis (which technically is not really a thesis but an “MRP,” even though no one seems to know the difference), you can find it on my thesis documentation site.
Magazines that I should have finished reading yesterday: Pica nº 1 and nº 2, plus a huge backlog of Transactions on Professional Communication
Books that I should have finished reading yesterday: Emigre 70, Typographers on Type, Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth : Volume II, and the stack of books I borrowed from the library
This is of course just a continuation of the previous list. But these ones really stick out, because they came from way back when I took B1 French:
Le Petit Nicolas / Sempé
Le racisme expliqué à ma fille / Tahar Ben Jelloun
Tous les matins je me lève / Jean-Paul Dubois
Une vie française
Je voudrais que quelqu’un m’attende quelque part / Anna Gavalda
I should probably give up on updating this list. There are even articles from my first year foundations course that I haven’t yet read.
