    1. although it is a difficult book to read given its various technical expositions, i like how wendy chun poses critical questions on and explains the historical antecedents of our "sudden" reliance on everything digital. her arguments of code as logos, user as sovereign, interfaces as "enlightening" maps, computer as metaphor for metaphor, and the enduring ephemerality of digital media are compelling.


    2. An intelligent book that hits on good topics in regards to interaction, code (and encoding) parts talking about organic data transmitted through RNA are particularly fascinating, as well as historical insights on interface and codes/programmings relation to older tech such as radar.The overall tone of voice howeve, rmakes it difficult to read and frankly a bit boring.


    3. Definitivamente, siempre que hablemos de 'nuevos medios' (y la ambigüedad filológica en la que están inmersos), el problema de la MEMORIA salta al pensamiento. Wendy Hui Kyong Chun es alguien que lo tiene muy claro.
