Secret characters: The interaction of narrative and technology
Computers and Composition Volume 19, Number 1, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
“Secret Characters” is an autobiographical sketch of a science fiction writer’s relationship with the Information Technology revolution, from the Commodore PET to Microsoft 2000: a creator of imaginary futures privileged to observe an ‘imaginary future’ in the act of becoming present reality. It touches on the nature of narrative and technology; the changing workplace, the changes in human interaction, before concentrating on the emergence of the multivalent ‘self’ of virtual environment learning.
