Digital writing also reminds us of the very physical elements and interactions required to write. Digits not only refers to the zeros and ones that float in cyberspace and create online spaces, but also refers to the fingers we use to craft the writing translated to zeros and ones and then retranslated and fed to the screen through the software we use to interface digital spaces.
We frame digital writing and digital rhetoric by the emerging body of theory and knowledge about communication and writing in online environments, using digital technologies. Digital writing addresses the question of how writing and communication work in digital spaces.
Finally, we use the term digital writing because we would argue that today all writing is digital, and most writing requires weaving text, images, sound, video--working within and across multiple media, often for delivery within and across digital spaces.
