Literature and word-processing

The New York Times has a good story on literature and word-processing: The Muses of Insert, Delete and Execute. One choice bit:

Jimmy Carter set off what may have been the first word-processing-related panic in 1981, when he accidently deleted several pages of his memoir in progress by hitting the wrong keys on his brand-new $12,000 Lanier.

Here’s a picture of a Lanier Model 103.
