Katherine Hayles, the place new languages are continually rising, proliferating, and fading into obsolescence. those are languages of our personal making: the programming languages written in code for the clever machines we name desktops.

My mom used to be a Computer explores how the impression of code on lifestyle has develop into akin to that of speech and writing: las anguage and code have grown extra entangled, the strains that when separated people from machines, analog from electronic, and previous applied sciences from new ones became blurred.
