Subject: Turing's Tape
Hello Willard and Humanist subscribers,
I am wondering if any one can point to work broaching the topic of cultural
media sources for Turing’s Tape. I am struggling with how addressability can
emerge from the idea of sequence (this I take to be important for storage and
retrieval). It seems obvious that the cinema can supply the notion of sequence:
celluloid running backwards and forwards. Turing of course predates the era of
video with its time code (and hence addressability). I feel I am missing
something in descriptions of Turing’s Tape.
I am not after a causal relation but attempting to examine homologies.
Appreciate any pointers.
