Brittany picks up from Jay Bolter’s article that all writing is a technology. And therefore when computers come along we can use the computer to keep writing the same way, or we can use the computer to write a different way. Hypertext is a different way. Word is the same way. Rebecca uses the quote about how we can’t distance ourselves from writing. I like to reverse this so that writing is a technology that has completely colonised us, has changed our world, without our consent. We are writing cyborgs, in effect. Helena picks up what we call the technicity of writing, and how it is an art. Even her counter example of scientific writing, good writing here requires artfulness just as anywhere else, different rules to short stories, but it is still an artful game. Shavoni has a very good outline of some takeaways from this reading.
