Word processing is hot and the media is on the trail.
This morning The New York Times Arts Beat blog published “Who Word-Processed First? Professor’s History Has Writers Staking Their Claim” on MITH Associate Director Matt Kirschenbaum, which covered the early word processing authors who have contacted Matt (several staking their claim in the chronicle of literary word processing) since the Times‘ previous article on Matt from December 25, 2011.
Additionally, this morning Matt appeared on Maryland Morning with Sheilah Kast, Maryland’s NPR station, to discuss his upcoming book “Track Changes: A Literary History of Word Processing,” set to be published by Harvard University Press in 2013.
Pretty soon we’ll have to send out a search for a publicist. Well done, Matt!
