"In his article, “Organic Writing and Digital Media: Seeds and Organs”, Pete Rorabaugh says that the “Growth [of ideas or compositions] is determined by the encouragement and critique of the community.” Note that it is not “affected” nor “influenced” by the community. No, the growth of ideas is determined by the community. What gets said is inevitably communal. We create the choir as we preach, and the choir creates us. Pete is talking about the compositional process of a piece of writing, within and without the classroom; but if we take digital writing out of the academic, intellectual environment, we discover an organic quality by which natural hybridization takes place — seeds that beget seeds. Living text so dynamic that it defies our first-sentence hopes for organized paragraphs, supporting proofs, and tidy conclusions."
