The New Media Reader is a massive collection of papers, articles and book excerts anticipating or contributing to the emerging digital medium. It includes most of the significant work from the 1940s onwards, thus in a way sketching a cultural history of "new media."
The first section addresses the complexity and combinatorial possibilities of digital media, including the earliest precursor of what eventually became hypertext and the www: Bush, Engelbart, Nelson and other computing pioneers along with prescient artists such as Ascott and Oulipo. In the second section, the social nature of the new media is explored in an equally appropriate selection ranging from McLuhan to Baudrillard and Deleuze/Guattari. The third section is slightly more loosely connected around activity and action, including work by Papert, Turkle, Stallman, Winograd/Flores and others. In the fourth and final section, countercultural and revolutionary themes are explored in writings of Suchman, Ehn/Kyng, Bolter, Moulthrop, Agre, CAE, Berners-Lee and others. The supplementary CD contains several hard-to-find examples, including a few seminal games and artworks and a generous video excerpt of Engelbart's 1968 demo of the NLS system.
As the selection of names above illustrates, the New Media Reader is an impressive attempt to map the cultural history of the digital medium. It should be required reading for any interaction design student. Even though the history of our field is short, it is substantial and the perspective on digital artifacts as media is growing steadily in importance in the foreseeable future.

A broad collection of essays, ranging from the anecdotal to the rigorous. The common focus of all the contributions is on the relation between role-playing and story. This is examined throughout many forms of play, including board games, interactive fiction, political simulations, augmented reality games, table-top and live-action role-playing games, and more. The book carries on the theme from First Person but usefully narrows it to forms where the played and the told are necessarily combined. My feeling is that what I learn from the book extends outside the realms of game design and art-aspiring fiction, and into any interaction design situation where ludic and narrative elements are involved. Such situations seem to be growing increasingly common.… (mere)

A collection of selected essays, carefully structured and augmented with expert commentary. The focus is squarely on new media artifacts (rather than on the communication being mediated or the actors communicating) and the key topic is the ongoing debate on story vs. game: Are new media artifacts best understood narratologically or ludologically? The collection serves as a very useful introduction to new media topics in game studies and digital arts.
