  1. That was a really good article. If we think about it when famous writers of today are honored in a museum or a display of their works would people rather see the notebooks where there novels were written in long hand or their laptops and hard drives where their original works were stored? I’m guessing that people won’t be interested in seeing a famous writer’s computer. For all the writers out there please leave something for posterity other than your hard drive!

    1. Good point, Eric, about notebooks vs. hardware and posterity. I think it works on a personal level, too. Through switching from typewriter to computer to newer computer (and etc.), I have to try really hard not to lose academic papers, creative pieces, etc. But, from the years before I got wired, I have a big lotka paper book with almost everything I want to remember in it.
