Sherry Turkle Quotes: Pinball Games Were Constrained By

Pinball Games Were Constrained By Physical Limitations, Ultimately By The Physical Laws That Govern The Motion Of A Small Metal Ball. The Video World Knows No Such Bounds. Objects Fly, Spin, Accelerate, Change Shape And Color, Disappear And Reappear. Their Behavior, Like The Behavior Of Anything Created By A Computer Program, Is Limited Only By The Programmer's Imagination. The Objects In A Video Game Are Representations Of Objects. And A Representation Of A Ball, Unlike A Real One, Never Need Obey The Laws Of Gravity Unless Its Programmer Wants It To.
