What is the nature of the change represented by digital communications technologies? How will the impact of the digital compare with the massive changes spawned in its time by print and books? These are the two key questions addressed in this article. The authors answer the first of these questions by comparing the emergence of the printed book with the emergence of the digital communications technologies. The next section of this article, "Transformations in Ways of Meaning: the case of print", discusses the technological nature and textual consequences of the printing press. The following section, "Transformations in Ways of Meaning: designing text digitally", does the same for digital connectivity. Several themes emerge. (Contains 9 figures.)
