Here are some key terms for this essay. Some of them, like "literacies," may seem ordinary enough, but as all academic disputants do, I am probably using them in special ways. Here, I try to spell out what I mean for the purposes of this argument and essay:
E-literacies and Elite-racies
Politexts and Politics
Other Cultural Formations
You might prefer to skip this part of the essay and proceed directly to my account of how tools came to be.
