Wonderful conversation with Susan Gibb about story, hypertext, and edge. Hypertext is the form, but story is still king. We also talked about knowledge as it pertains to thinking about story and all the things that wriers would not have known if they did not write. There are some things a person would never have known if it weren’t for the writing.
For example, without the word “giggling” we never would have known about a man and woman who speak to each other via bridges. These two people are that we need to know. But then we need to see what happens in the face of change, the arbitrary, deep water.
