    This book explores the subject of Computer Art in a sort of "if a = b and b = c, then a = c, maybe, depending on how you define a. Oh, and b. And c, too" way. Art, and computer art as well, can be a subject for much navel gazing. I don't feel much smarter or more enlightened for having read this book.

    Most of the book is pretty uncontroversial, but the chapter on videogames is an embarrassment for so many reasons.
