Rereading:
"Remediation" by Bolter & Grusin.

How come the chapter on Computer Games p. 88-103 suddenly end up discussing porn in video games. None of the other chapters looks on the influence on porn and remediation - except of course in The networked self p. 256-265 in which MUD and pornography is discussed.

Chapters on subjects like digital photography, film, television, www and even virtual reality fail to discuss the influence pornography has on the media.

Considering this chapter on video games, it seems as if while some video games are narrative others are pornographic.

Why video games? Why not media in general!

Does this scenario sound familiar?

It's 3:00 a.m. in the morning. You've just spent the past 24 hours trying to figure out a problem you're having with your personal computer. You've got a gazillion websites, files, manuals and troubleshooters open and you can't figure out where that last little tidbit is that you are SURE will solve the problem! You're so frustrated that you're ready to throw the blasted computer in the trash, monitor, cpu and all!

We've all been there at one time or another. And just when you think you've found the answer, the writer leaps into a whole litany of "geek speak" and once again you're headed down a dead end road. Well, that was then. This is now. You have got to get your hands on the tool that has revolutioned my pc experience. Computer Training computer rental
