HYPERTEXT: The Elusive Gotcha

October 18th, 2009 by susan


Just noticed something while editing a story that’s rather a drawback to hypertext–unless you’ve specifically asked someone to read for you.

I found a sentence in one of my 100 Days hypertexts that just didn’t make any sense. I realized that some words had been inadvertently deleted in rewriting it and never corrected. In straight narrative, this would tell me that nobody read the story. But in hypertext, they honestly could have read it and may have taken another path and missed this space.

Obviously, even with my own rereadings I’ve missed it too.
