Hulpmiddelen die we ontwikkelen zijn niet alleen maar hulpmiddelen die ons ondersteunen maar ze veranderen ons ook. Cartografie heeft ons denkproces hoe problemen op te lossen verandert (een probleem in kaart brengen)Sometime in 1882, Friedrich Nietzsche bought a typewriter—a Malling-Hansen WritingBall, tobeprecise. His vision was failing, andkeeping his eyesfocused on a page had becomeexhaustingandpainful, oftenbringing on crushingheadaches. He had been forcedtocurtail his writing, and he fearedthat he wouldsoon have togiveit up. The typewriter rescuedhim, at leastfor a time. Once he had masteredtouch-typing, he was abletowritewith his eyesclosed, usingonly the tips of his fingers. Wordscouldonceagain flow from his mind to the page.But the machine had a subtler effect on his work. One of Nietzsche’sfriends, a composer, noticed a change in the style of his writing. His alreadyterseprose had become even tighter, more telegraphic. “Perhapsyouwillthroughthis instrument even take to a new idiom,” the friendwrote in a letter, notingthat, in his ownwork, his “‘thoughts’ in musicandlanguageoftendepend on the quality of pen and paper.”“You are right,” Nietzsche replied, “ourwriting equipment takes part in the forming of ourthoughts.” Under the sway of the machine, writes the German media scholar Friedrich A. Kittler, Nietzsche’sprose “changedfromargumentstoaphorisms, fromthoughtstopuns, fromrhetoricto telegram style.”
