This is not my actual computer. My real laptop is in repair so I am using my super cute (but super small) travel laptop. Can you tell? No way. When you think of it: how much we are dependent on those computers. I typed my MA thesis on a type writer and you had to retype it again for corrections and changes--I still am grateful for my then adviser, Rashid Khalidi, who urged me to learn typing if I wanted to go to graduate school. I went to a typing school in Beirut: and sexism was overt: there were all women (wanting to be secretaries) and my friend and I were the only males.
