Unedited notes from Ian Bogost Seminar

I had an opportunity to sit in on a seminar w/ Ian Bogost who gave a presentation about his research into platform studies. Below are my unedited notes from his presentation and the ensuing discussion.

materiality
software as materiality
a room on the screen

communities built for a sake of convenience
making [McLuhan] tetrad of natural occurring objects/phenomenon

inherent utility in making things

questions of things is more often a question of human ethics as opposed to question of being
causation is metaphorical

    -reality is a system of illusions that we interpret through metaphor
