The fifth chapter of "The History of Computer Art" is now online in
the English translation. The missing chapters VI to VIII will follow.
Chapter V.1 and V.2 on reactive installations (responsive
environments, virtual reality, CAVE):

I think we can agree with the understanding that, yes, surprise,
surprise, representation of reality via linguistic reduction is ...
exclusive. But a critique of such a comprehensive work should at least
rise to the level at which the work by Dr. Dreher has been done -- to
show some respect for the effort -- I would hope that any/all of you who
make a critique would supply him with relevant resources, references,
documentation, and so on to add to what must be a tremendous
bibliography already.

To simply say this ... and this ... and this ... were not included is
more than dispiriting.

The other alternative is to have nothing written and let what was fade
away with the death of living memory.
