Sample text

Ann told of how she "banished the family for two weeks" when Amy came to work on their book, which enabled them to spread out all over the floor. Cups of coffee, cosy restaurants, private rooms and home visits are all mentioned many times. Portability may turn out to be an important feature of collaborative writing tools.

Others also talked of the need at key stages in the production of a piece of writing to get a global view of it whilst also being able to get quick access to the detail of the text itself at any point.

Initially this caused some annoyance to the moderator, because some characteristics of the proposed modifications were technically impossible to implement with available resources. Much of the discussion in the conference consisted of reports of 'bugs' in the code of the prototype, and the coder was kept busy fixing these.

Planning, then, is no longer simply a matter of organising ideas associatively retrieved from memory, but involves a detailed analysis of the rhetorical problem, leading to the construction of a complex hierarchy of goals and sub-goals which guide the selection and construction of ideas to be included in the plan.
