Taco_Chap8_Montfort_I

Montfort is essentially saying that Interactive Fiction (IF) is all of the following: story, game, storygame, novel, world, literature, puzzle, problem, riddle, and machine. My thought is simply this, IF is a category unto itself. Just like music and video are categories unto themselves, so is IF, and the subareas listed above are its genres.

Not mind-blowing or world changing, but neither was this compostion to me.

Ha -Kudos. I think all media is converging. I think music videos will one day cease to exist as they are. If I was a musician, I would rather have an IF over a 3:30 music video that would not be played on MTV.
