             Subject: Geoffrey Rockwell, "Turing's Reaction"

    Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is delighted to
    announce that Geoffrey Rockwell's March 2002 talk, 'Turing's Reaction:
    Dialogue as a model for interactivity in multimedia' delivered as part of
    MITH's Distinguished Speaker Series, is now available electronically at
    http://www.mith.umd.edu/publications/dss/ in both HTML and XML. An abstract
    of the talk appears below:

    'It is common to describe certain computer-based artifacts as interactive.
    We think we know what this means, but like many terms it vanishes before
    the definition. In this talk I will try to first argue that it is important
    to ask about interactivity and I will then defend a definition of
    interactivity in multimedia with special attention to the discourse around
    interactivity in computer games.'
