"Newspapers and television aren't interactive. They don't have any body language. With a multimedia system the information takes on a life of its ownj it has energy. The viewer can interact with it, and having done so, the machine knows what pleases or displeases them. The machine will have an element of control that even the television companies may not be aware of. Even if they were, there wouldn't be anything they could do about it. Imagine the TV output of the Gulf War being subject to that sort of scrutiny ."
Ed smiled. "We had it tied up Peter, we had those reporters well under control."
"Really?" Peter replied.
"Look" snapped Ed, "This new computerised television doesn't cause me any problems. You're the one who's frightened of it. You're scared of your own product. Don't think I'm going to be put off running it. I know there were bits missing from the copy you sent me. I know you took out the similar function from the Artificial Intelligence program, hoping that I wouldn't be able to run it on your book. Let's see what happens when we run it, shall we?"
