HUIN206 Blogpost1: Writing as technology

I read parts of the article Writing Space by Jay David Bolter.

In this article, he argues that the techincal and cultural dimensions of writing are so closely linked that they should not be looked upon as seperate. Writing does not change culture, but is rather a part of culture. Technologies can in his opinion therefore not be a force that determines the course of culture.

This may be looked upon as Soft technological determinism or Co-construction, since he agrees that culture and techonology are par of one another, and would therefore be of influence to eachother.
