I found the first half of Track Changes, the first 170 pages or so. It felt like, to me at least, that the first half was full of energy, vivid anecdotes from the writers like Steven King and Isaac Asimov and their relationship to the word processor and how it affected their writing filled that first half, plus some interesting history and fears that the technology brought. I was oddly fascinated with the book. And then the fascination escaped me, I began to feel that the book repeated itself over and over talking about the Wang, the IBM, and WordPerfect in the same aspects that were already mentioned early on in the book. Although, the chapter on the IBM self-writing typewriter was very interesting and made me wonder how Flusser would describe that machine. Is it the digital codes that he fears most, or the automation of writing? The IBM typewriter would be an interesting thing to explore through his lens because although it uses magnetic tape to store words, the user (probably female) can add and revise as the automotive process is going. It feels more like a melding of human and machine to make the process of writing more efficient than the destruction and misuse of the alphabet, and it avoids the pixalization, the changing of words into images of the word processors that would come later.
