The idea of Hypertext is now being analysed and explained once again. To be honest, this is the very first time I’ve actually learnt about the concept of hypertext rather than just knowing its definition as “text displayed on a computer display or other electronic device with references (hyperlinks) to other text which the reader can immediately access, or where text can be revealed progressively at multiple levels of detail”. It’s amazing how people invented this and make everything so easy to link and support each other in different ways only with one simple click on a blue underlined text.
It’s true to say that nowadays Hypertext appears everywhere, mentioned by everyone, even in this blog here, hypertext is being used as a helpful tool to reference the chapter I’ve read about hypertext. Hypertext or hyperlink is so popularly used in this era in which internet, smartphone and computer rule the world. But as it is now widely used around the world, accessible to everyone, privacy and security should be concerned. Nothing is really safe on the internet!
I also find an interesting blog about the hyperlink war that shows another dark side of hypertext/hyperlink, that we need to reconsider before using and clicking, especially writers.
