Queer History of Computing, Part Two

Very absorbing.  Readers who take an interest in both Wittgenstein and Turing may find this analysis via queer history of interest.

If we consider queerness simply in terms of sexual preference or as an alternative formation within an established set of desiring modes, then describing any form of computing as “queer” may seem absurd. If instead we understand queerness as a process of self-shattering rather than self-fashioning, then we begin to align it with these exceptional objects and practices that exist beyond the limits of a system such as computation.
