This piece of technovelgy is the ultimate in mixed media. Not only do you have the usual items, text reports and photographs along with video recordings of the subject, but actual life experience of the person. In order to experience a biosoft, you need to "jack" it directly into your brain (the expression derives from "phone jack", the connector that you used to plug your phone line into before you got your cell phone.)
