Technische Schriften

"As we know and simply do not say, no human being writes anymore. [...] Today, human writing runs through inscriptions burnt into silicon by electronic lithography [...]. The last historic act of writing may thus have been in the late seventies when a team of Intel engineers [plotted] the hardware architecture of their first integrated microprocessor."
(Kittler, Es gibt keine Software. In: ders.: Draculas Vermächtnis. Technische Schriften).
