To accompany this link, here is a talk given by Rita Raley, the associate professor of English at the University of California at Santa Barbara. She talks about how this text raises questions about how the reader is affected by participating in the reading process:

(you can skip to about 23 minutes into the talk for that bit) In general, the Comparative Media studies Archives are quite a good resource for hearing some of the authors in our readings give live talks (like Hayles for example).

This idea of how the reader is affected will tie into our talk about deconstruction and decentralizing the author in a written work.
