The Secret History of Hypertext - The Atlantic
History has left out some figures? Who would have expected. The Atlantic is only rediscovering these historical figures of hypertext because the scholars have published books for The Atlantic.

The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral | Hapgood
Its about trailblazing, building the garden. Getting your mojo workin. It's a lead reading for Weblogs and Wikis because it's something no one has been talking about, much less doing.

"Everybody wants to play in the Stream, but no one wants to build the Garden."

"I’m blown away by the vision of this every time I read this. But not because this has happened, but because it *hasn’t* happened. I’m blown away because here, in 2015, there are elements to this vision that we still haven’t explored.... More than that, there’s a substance to the vision that you can’t help but long for reading it. Note that connections here aren’t banter, but the construction of a mental model of a subject area. And that model can be taken by someone else and extended, built on. Humanity can advance, not through argument by through a true collaboration."

Hyperrhiz.06: Essays: A Four-Sided Model for Reading Hypertext Fiction
Four modes of reading are identified and described. These are semantization, exploration, self-reflection and absorption. These modes arise as the reader interacts with textual elements and utilises contextual features. Through the article the modes of reading will be discussed in relation to similar established concepts, such as the four approaches to playing MUDs identified by Richard Bartle (1996), and different attitudes of reading print literature represented in Wolfgang Iser's theory on "die Appellstruktur der Texte" (Iser 1974, 1978), or what he later in his text game theory calls "text game structures" (Iser 1989; 1993).

A Pragmatics of Links | Tosca | Journal of Digital Information
"This paper applies the linguistic theory of relevance to the study of the way links work, insisting on the lyrical quality of the link-interpreting activity. It is argued that such a pragmatic approach can help us understand hypertext readers` behavior, and thus be useful for authors and tool-builders alike." Read alongside Burbles. Rhetorics of the web. Becomes useful for practice on last page.
