Codename Revolution

Steven E. Jones and George K. Thiruvathukal are co-authors of Codename Revolution: The Nintendo Wii Platform (MIT Press, 2012). It’s a contribution to the Platform Studies series edited by Nick Montfort and Ian Bogost, which offers critical investigation of the relationship between the hardware and software design of computing systems and the creative works produced on those systems. In this case the co-authors saw the book as an experiment in applying a dual media studies and computer science approach to the study of a computing platform with a wide cultural influence.
