Response to Reading

1) The first half of Manovich's reading addresses the six generalizations made about the computer, and when reading this list, I myself couldn't help but point out the flaws in some claims. For one, when one generalization said that digital images keep their quality when converted is wrong; the image compresses than looses some information or quality. My question then is, that with the evolution of the computer or digital media will there be new assumptions about it or still remain the Same?

2) When Manovich talked about the interactivity of digital media, and how this physical activity is present in other forms of media, I can't help but wonder if digital media will keep pushing this? What would Manovich think about the concept of virtual reality?
