I just read some introduction about Hypertext Essay. As what i mentioned before, my fisrt step is know it, im doing this step now. Moreover,i reviewed some lecture notes in last semester.
“Hypertext is writing on the web that incorporates the use of hyperlinks. This is its main feature and what makes it different from regular writing. While we read most book text or papertext from top to bottom, left to right, front to back, we don’t necessarily read hypertext in the same linear way. Hypertext is read differently by each reader, and therefore each hypertext document continues to change. The reader is as much a part of the writing as the writer in making meaning. Maybe I can explain what I mean with the following analogy.”
I quoted this paragraphy from here.
This one is really helpful, it is a specifical introduction of Hypertext Essay, moreover, it is linked by too many key words. I took a glance of Sethkeen’s examples, the most impressive place is the design of web page, except for Hypertext Essays, how to build a wonderful page to show it is same important. Umm..i have a clear direction now,
1. web design 2. content.
