Title: Authors and readers in an age of electronic texts
Author(s): Bolter, Jay David
Subject(s): Electronic texts
Abstract: Electronic hypertext is the latest in a series of technologies of writing; it is a technological innovation that is both revolutionary and evolutionary. Hypertext challenges our sense that any book is a complete, separate, and unique expression of its author. In addition to hypertextual writing, the computer also supports new forms of graphic representation and communication. As all forms of electronic communication become increasingly important in our society, we must learn how to combine these two orthogonal information spaces: the visual space of computer graphics with the semantic space of hypertext.
