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.

Mega Menus Work Well for Site Navigation (Jakob Nielsen)
Wouldn't have thought these would work, but on second look, I can see why they do: Mega menus appear almost as a new page, redefining the context of the selection. But try it on a mobi to get the real beauty of stumbling over your own fingers.

Your WYSIWYG Editor sucks
outlines the concerns of developers, which is a good insight into how and what they think. includes that pesky gender problem: the smes are gendered as women, getting a little too creative for the developers and either slow in learning or just plain obstinate. interesting how the typist is still gendered and the solutions to them is still administrative.

EPIC FAIL: the sorry state of web education in schools |
via tech_rhet. Move away from teaching and using proprietary software - from Word to Dreamweaver - and start incorporating open source and web-based stuff - the kind of stuff that students can use to get beyond the proprietary. Excellent little article, but I wonder what took them so long to figure this out. Academia doesn't move as slowly as all that. Been doing this, and wrestling with it, for years. Might want to read this in conjunction with TBL's Long Live the Web.

Monograph | Teach the Web
A passable review of what web developers see a valuable in learning web development and design. As expected, the focus is on understanding theory, engagement, malleable learners. The article stereotypes higher ed courses as too slow to adapt. Also relies on the outdated bicameral mind to address the differences in practices in development and design. Worth tapping into.

Bring the E-Books Home » ‘Chasing Crusoe’ via multimedia: Robinson Crusoe the novel vs. the real ‘Crusoe’ and his island
critique of the Chasing Crusoe multimedia presentation: squanders the opportunity to really develop the text. But it looks like the project is supposed to be a mass media story rather than a deep text.
