Notes toward a rhetoric of e-mail

Computers and Composition Volume 12, Number 1, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This article explores the differences between e-mail and paper mail. The author focuses on audience, interface, and rhythm of response. Among the primary arguments made in this article are that technological change triggers other changes in a system, creating discomfort; and that this discomfort should not prevent English and writing teachers from studying and accepting e-mail as a legitimate site for writing.
