Please don't neglect to spend time between now and Monday reviewing your notes from the film viewing, and coming up with your individual analysis of how Tron functions in light of either Snow Crash or Marshall McLuhan.

On the topic of virtuality, I believe that the film holds up surprisingly, and comendably well, (and the 80s clothes and cinematic tropes are delightfully amusing.) I have the tentative opinion that its intellectual respectability, specifically in relation to virtual reality is no lower than that of The Matrix.

I, naturally, have my own view of tron in McLuhan-esque terms, which I will add to the class discussion on Monday.
