Abstract : The internet is a technical system that relies heavily on writing. It is even its contemporary form. Writing is not only a support of thought, it also informs it: through the know-how, the methods and the reflections that writing induces, writing shapes the frameworks of our thought: our culture of writing. Hence, writing is defined as a technology of the intellect. The Internet allows us to understand these facts which are already known by historians and anthropologists of writing: its material and social realities are noticeable, it also helps us to understand the technical and collective dimensions of our thinking. As the internet indicates a binary and networked writing, which modifies our systems of signs, our supports, our methods, it also modifies these frameworks. But few people master this new writing, monopolized by the digital industry and today deeply unstable. These turbulences also signal an agency: if we choose to become digital literates, we can become sculptors of this digital culture and profile it according to our values.
