Read at least one of these texts and write a personal response on the blog. I’m not looking for a summary or a review (I liked it etc.), it can be any coherent thought that runs in your mind after reading.
The garden forking paths – Jorge Luis Borges (1941)
Brainy. We talked about it in class, visionary literature.
CYOA – Christian Swinehart (200?)
Geeky. A formal analysis of Choose Your Own Adventure books.
Computer Lib / Dream Machines – Ted Nelson (1974)
Funky. Also, the most important text about personal computers ever written. (excerpt from New Media Reader)
1000 Plateaux: Rhizome – Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari (1980)
Classy. The first chapter of a beautiful and fundamental piece of philosophy. Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything, you can read it as poetry.
