EL 336 - Kirschenbaum Chp 3

"As Morris Eaves argues, digitization is the process by which complex units are made simpler by breaking them down into smaller units. It is not merely a phenomenon of the current age, but and acitve force throughout technological history." (Kirschenbaum pg 134)

That is a way I have never looked at interactive fiction. I do not know anything about the genre of gaming, but it makes sense that the breakdown is an important part of anything having to do with technology. The internet itself is soemthign that has been broken down alot for a clearer understanding. Even computer programs we use in our everyday life have probably been broken down from when they first emerged.
