Sebastian Kearse '10, English 65, The Cyborg Self, Brown University (Fall 2006)

"Soon after Gutenburg finished his printing press, one could now more easily gain access to information. Print was no longer for just the wealthy and the libraries. Communication advanced as one distributed print in many ways. News could only be spread by letters or verbal dialogue, and the printing press reduced the amount of private communication. Scientists could release their findings, and many books that were once printed only in Latin were translated in other languages."
