With touchscreen technology poised to become a ubiquitous part of our lives, the future of the book is likely to change dramatically as well.
From TED.com – “Software developer Mike Matas demos the first full-length interactive book for the iPad — with clever, swipeable video and graphics and some very cool data visualizations to play with. The book is Our Choice, Al Gore’s sequel to ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.”
Throughout both COMM 1007 – Technical Writing Style and COMM 1008 – Technical Editing and Grammar classes, Jason stressed the importance of learning industry standard software used in technical writing. The amusing visuals he used and his approachable manner helped to make the classes very engaging. And his frequent anecdotes about experience in the industry helped me understand something about the real work of a technical writer.
Thank you for providing [us] with Jason Hall’s services during their migration; the project is officially over. During the sign-off interview, [our IT Manager] said she was extremely satisfied with the work Jason did. (Despite me giving you such short notice!) [She] was particularly impressed with Jason’s ability to quickly resolve their logo migration issue. This would have been a huge problem for them to resolve but Jason did it within a day.
Thanks again for pulling the rabbit out of the hat. I look forward to working with you again.
"I found the Writing for the Web class at BCIT taught by Jason Hall to be very helpful. It helped me develop my skills in writing short, concise sentences and to prepare, organize and execute my own blog and wiki. I was thinking about starting my own blog or web page so this part of the class really gave me a head start in the right direction.
Overall, it was the best class I have yet taken in the Technical Writing program."
