In the mid ending, basically chapter 11 Kirschenbaum shares what the Hemingwrite is in which he says it is, “designed for pounding out drafts for something close to what composition theories term freewriting” (241).  I would say that this is something that I do whenever I have to come up …

Kirschenbaum, Ch 7

On page 155 Kirschenbaum gets into the capabilities that the word processor has, which interested me because I didn’t know about one of these capabilities until my senior year of high school and I have been using word since I’ve been in middle school .

The way Stephenson ended the novel was like a heartfelt moment more  so because of the encounter with Nell and Miranda. Miranda had longed to meet Nell and Harv when she first encountered Nell through the primer. From that moment on Miranda had developed and attachment with Nell because she …

Hackworth has created this primer that everyone wants and now has to create thousands of them, which is technically impossible.

Reading through this section is where I had finally got the connection of the Hackworth story and Nell’s story. Nell had the primer that Hackworth had created, but had lost and I concluded that Harv is the one who mugged Hackworth along with his friends because of the nunchucks he …

Kirschenbaum, Ch 5

I didn’t find chapters five and six of Kirschenbaums Track Changes as interesting as the previous chapters. There were a few quotes that I noticed throughout the chapters to which I was able to make connections with my own experiences.
