[Their] theory can indicate the dangers of conceiving writing as a uniquely potent material or technological practice. Writing has its uses, to be sure. But writing—in newspapers or journals, in books, or on screens—does not harbor any special redemptive power. . . . Writing is a group of technological practices like many others: often useful, sometimes delightful, frequently unreliable, but never exclusively efficacious in social change processes—or in life more generally."
