Reading and writing have been perceived as processes characterized by individualism and intimate cognition. Technological progress changes these basic postulates and introduces possibilities for collaboration in reading and writing processes. This paper presents a literature review of selected knowledge gathered so far on the processes of reading and writing and defines new concepts of Reading 2.0 and Solitary reader. These concepts should add to understanding of the changes that are now possible and comprehending ups and downs these changes bring to reading and writing processes. The paper presents technological achievements allowing for machines to be involved in text creation and text analysis. New possibilities for increasing efficiency and effectiveness of text usage and creation are introduced. Basics needed for optimal implementation of new technologies are also discussed. Uncertainty that goes hand in hand with novelties is also considered and a proactive approach is advocated for those professionally involved with reading and writing in a dynamic environment that changes almost daily.
