Bolter, Jay David and Richard Grusin. “Networks of Remediation”

1. Throughout the reading, it seems as if the writers separate the idea of “medium” and “device” by categorizing the applications based on these two terms.   How are they different?

2. “The remediation of material practice is inseparable from the remediation of social arrangements”  Can you think of any interface that portrays how space functions as communication in a social context? 

3. How does media generalize gender perspectives? How does remediation revolve around gender? 

I’m really confused about this part… is the article simply saying that what we understand from remediation may be difference because of gendered perspectives?
