My New Love…

… footnotes…
As I am writing up my “Moleskine to Mobile” thesis, I am having more fun with the footnotes than with the actual academic content. David Foster Wallace and Terry Pratchett… be very afraid… Ms. Jen is joining the footnotes crew… ;o)

    He he… just watch out for the urge to add endnotes to your footnotes, thats when its gone from fun to an unhealthy addiction 😉

    Wow. We weren’t allowed to use footnotes in all papers. They were considered… passe, jejeune. Something. I guess the Irish are different. Is it MLA?

    No MLA, no Chicago… Our instructions are to pick a style and be consistent. This is the Computer Science department, I think that if it was the English department they would probably have stricter guidelines.
    I have chosen footnotes, because endnotes on anything longer than 5 pages is annoying. Trying to flip back and forth to read and then check the notes, bah.
    Jeune or not, passe or not, footnotes are fun!
