Theme Park Politics

Some interactive websites don't need to do much to be entertaining. Many years ago, I well remember shelling out francs to the operator of a giant mechanical magnifier who would focus on key details in Rogier van der Weyden's Last Judgment in the Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune, France that showed the torments and moral failings in the smallest details of the damned.

Ian Bogost points out that one can have similar magnifier fun in the imagined theme park environment of The George Bush Presidential Librarium.
