-Working through old notes from N.K. Hayles’s texts. Her account of the cybernetic theory of the transmission of information (in How We Became Posthuman) emphasizes the importance of both the sender and the receiver (neither of which are necessarily human, but both of which are necessarily embodied). The inclusion of the receiver parallels the importance of the reader in the production of the work in Iser’s reader response theory. This is a potentially interesting parallel, but I’n not sure what work it does for me.
