Lanham’s use of “play” in “Digital Rhetoric and The Digital Arts”

This is a response post to the question of how Lanham is using the word “play” in his chapter. ┬áIt gets a bit convoluted with some of the distinctions I’m attempting here (not unlike Lanham’s using of the word play in many different ways), but I hope it at least provides a better response to the question than my rushed attempt at the end of class last time.
