Re: [-empyre-] C. S. Peirce and Code

around the 17/10/05 Roman Danylak mentioned about Re: [-empyre-] C. S. Peirce and Code that:
When people say "digital writing" how is this different to pen writing? Is
this different to typewriter writing? Does it then make a difference  to the
language  used if you write on an electronic word processor?

yes. if only the medium of reception/reading is different (where is the beginning of my blog? the end?, or a real hypertext?).

Do I compose language differently for the telephone?

absolutely. We have quite different protocols and rules for how we talk on phones. There is a very complex set of behaviours that controls turn taking for example, which since we can't see the other speaker is only linguistic. Also the simple activity of announcing yourself when the phone rings ("hi, it's Adrian speaking") is an act that is not done in any other context (eg having a conversation at dinner).
