11.0 Definition of Writing
Writing: A technology for creating conceptual frameworks and creating, sustaining and performing lines of thought within those frameworks, drawing from and expanding upon existing conventions and genres, utilizing signs and symbols, incorporating materials drawn from multiple sources, and taking advantage of the resources of a full range of media. – Andrea Lunsford
I dislike this definition as an endpoint because it, like all definitions of a technology at the beginning, imagines a social neutrality of the technology. But no technology is socially neutral.
