What am I up to?

How is writing changing in the 21st century, now that we can update, edit, and revise writing quickly and at rapid scales? What strategies do online writers use to adjust their writing when they can textually interact with their audiences?  What implications does this have for our teaching? As an assistant professor of English at UIUC, these are foundational questions of my research.
