Summary

Naomi Baron examines the history of written English, the impact of the digital age on it, and the implications for its future.
In the fast moving world of email, spelling and punctuation take a back seat to content that is more like spoken conversations than anything else. Permanence and formality are becoming disposable anachronisms of written English.
Baron proclaims, we are not powerless to affect these changes.
