This weblog is meant to fulfil a whole array of purposes. Among those is organizing and structuring my material and thoughts. The magnificent ↑search plugin is an essential part, but categories are nevertheless necessary. Problem is that I have to think up the categories myself, as the software won’t. I asked it to do so, but it stubbornly refuses. In my project’s ↵abstract I already boasted: “[…] the interpretation of the fieldwork-results will be set into relation to the appropriate parts of the history of technology […]“. History of games’n’software is all fine, but the machines themselves and material culture are absolutely vital. In consequence I created the new category ↵hardware.
