Then discuss these three points in a 250-350 word well-written and cited essay:

A) First read Howard column (1928), and then Frys article (2004). In comparing the two stories discuss how we can explain their different views of the dangers of mass-production and centralization of the newspapers.

B) How does this relate to the story of the Linotype?

C) In what ways does this reflect the history of Technology and Systems as presented in my lecture and Misas chapter?
