Summary:
"Most books on digital media focus on what the machines of digital media look like from the outside but ignore the computational machines that make digital media possible. With this book, the first to approach computational processes from the perspective of media, games, and fiction, Wardrip-Fruin examines both the outside and the inside of digital media's machines."--BOOK JACKET.
