The Computer Technician as Author

Abstract:
Constructing something that tells a story is very much at home in computer science. But what should one consider when one (tries to) communicate/s using new media? Working from the concepts of: Literacy Narrative Reading Rhetoric Art I will introduce some of the parameters of the computer technician as author.
