From Gerald R. Lucas

This chapter outlines the foundations of writing digital: i.e., writing for screen-based media. While the writing strategies here borrow some ideas from those we employ when writing on paper, the overall emphasis is toward moving away from paper and and adopting habits that allow for the best communication in the age of mobile devices.
