This paper discusses written and print communication to show how and why these forms of human interaction were important advances in developing modern societies. The paper then looks at written communication in the computer age, including types of written communications, and implications for the future.

From the Paper:

"The value of being able to keep and retrieve knowledge, ideas or experiences outside of the oral tradition seems to have been recognized since the earliest cavemen. Without some form of written communication, primitive cultures relied upon the oral tradition, passing down knowledge, tribal history, laws via stories or rhythmic prose and poems. (McMurdo 2003) Some of the earliest forms of "writing" can be seen in cave drawings and rock paintings in the American Southwest, as well as in the southern area of France and in England. Other primitive forms of writing include notches on sticks, totem poles or etchings on rocks. While not writing as understood by modern society, these are all primitive ways of recording information to be passed on over time and for the most part over distance."
