Transcript of Intermediation Preview
How is computational media related to e-lit?
What are the differences between electronic and print literature?
How are a user's “embodied interactions brought into play when the textual performance is enacted by an intelligent machine?” (44)
Human and machine are “partners in a dynamic heterarchy bound together by intermediating dynamics” (47)
“Humans engineer computers and computers reengineer humans in systems bound together by recursive feedback and feedforward loops, with emergent complexities catalyzed by leaps between different media substrates and levels of complexity” (48)
What does intermediation mean for e-lit?
It describes the interaction between human and computer
Reader of e-lit notices patterns, makes a choice, and sends the program in a different direction.
Two cognitive systems at work, one simple (computer) and one complex (human)
“When a programmer/writer creates an executable file, the process re-engineers the writer’s perceptual and cognitive system as she works with the medium’s possibilities” (56)

Intermediation and the Reader
How the chapter lays out:
[Rely on this section when you're writing your "analysis" section. You will be applying "intermediation" to Moulthrop's Reagan Library just as Hayles uses the concept to analyze Joyce's work.]
[Rely on this section when you're writing your "summary" section.]
pp43-44: Introduction of chapter
pp44-59: Description of "intermediation"
