As I consider hypertext more and more in a global context–writing a story in Storyspace places the tool, concept, and writing process at the center of things. After a writer completes a story in Word, do they have dreams of the “system”?–I ask more and more questions about synthesis and effect.
Where will we be in 5 years? What will I be staring at and touching (clicking?)?What will happen to the weblogs and the “poems that go”? I want to be able to walk into the hypertext and change it from the inside yet make something physical.
