This state of affairs makes not only a difference to history when, at its alphabetical beginning, a camel and its Hebraic letter gemel were just 2. This crazy kind of software engineering suffered from an incurable confusion between use and mention. The last historical act of writing may well have been the moment when, in the early seventies, Intel engineers laid out some dozen square meters of blueprint paper 64 square meters, in the case of the later in order to design the hardware architecture of their first integrated microprocessor.

Consequently, he sees in writing literature, in writing programmes and in burning structures into silicon chips a complete continuum: "As we know and simply do not say, no human being writes anymore.

All physically feasible machines, in contrast, are limited by these parameters in their very code. This is relevant from a perspective of languages, and Kittler suggests that programming languages have transcended ordinary language and have formed something of a tower of Babel founded on computational equivalence. Notes Kittler opens by noting the pervasiveness of computers, and that writing is more frequently he says that the bulk of writing is stored in computer memory, where it is no longer perceivable by humans.
