The computational medium is simulation
The computational medium can create simulated worlds, as it can read and write dynamic systems. This makes it a meta-medium.
Some current examples may be hyper-focused social medias (creating a ‘simulated’ social world) or video games (creating totally alternative worlds - video games can be seen as ‘native’ to the computer).
From Chatting with Glue, I’ve also imagined the possibility of somehow actively participating in a conversation that has already past, perhaps by extending various points of it in meaningful ways - a greater version of a forum discussion.
