Written-token comparisons

portable media? I-pad?  

Ostraca (bits of discarded pottery) Posters, TV? 

wall writing (instruction, edicts, admonitions, etc) Legislation? Big letters on walls, marble, porticoes, large enough to be seen from an open forum.

how different a message is the one (above) from this one?

the point made is that these are social marks in their particular contexts!
