on book 17.

book 17 of 60: writing machines by n. katherine hayles

date started: 3.20.2014
date completed: 4.6.2014

this is another book for a research project, which may sound incredibly boring to some.  about the ways in which text and technology cooperate to create meaning, and as such should be considered inseperable, hayles presents ideas here that are not only interesting and fresh but, in my opinion, woefully overdue.

i did not think research on textual studies could get better than jerome mcgann...until i found hayles.  AMAZING.

probable next read:  on hold.  i'm in the middle of a dance with dragons and feel that it might never end...
