Last Thoughts on The Evolution of Writing: From Print to Web

After reading the second chapter of "Reading and Writing the Electronic Book" by Catherine C. Marshall I was interested in learning more about the different changes that are occurring for both the readers when they experience a text and for writers when they are writing due to the different platforms that have emerged because of advances in technology.

Web content writing is changing how we, as readers, experience text and learn. This virtual writing allows both readers and writers to have more accessibility to a variety of content. The writing that was seen in physical items like novels or dictionaries has been evolving into web content writing.

bring up how print writing the author had more power and force w the lines and how that isn't occuring in online writing
bring up the different formatting
the different things that hypertext can change and provide within the writing
