Once again I’m stalking my classmates blogs in order to better understand this week’s readings. I really liked Bernadette’s post where she simply explained what Manovich means when he’s going on about databases and narratives;
“Narrative: cause-and-effect of seemingly unordered items. Algorithms aren’t necessarily needed to proceed through narrative.
Databases: a list that is not ordered, corresponds to data structures.”
Thank you Bernadette for that succinct and easy to understand summation!
