In this article I use Albert Borgmann's (1984) four-part theory of technology to analyze various contributions to Computers and Composition -initially enthusiastic, sometimes fearful, and later aware of the complexities of technology and the need for anchoring discussions of technology in theory and pedagogy. By applying Borgmann's theory, I show how readers of Computers and Composition can follow the 20-year development of technological awareness in the journal, and I also show possibilities for future directions the journal can take.
