Thoughts, ideas, and other things 'a bit unkempt'…

Reconfiguring Narrative, George Landow


I found this reading just reiterated a lot of what we have already learnt about hypertext. It addressed the problems with structure (beginnings, middles, ends) and the lack of power to the author in some circumstances and the power to the author available in others. I liked that it incorporated Aristotle’s early definitions of beginning, middle and end, etc..but I felt that in all the reading was just a recap on what we have already looked at. Don’t get me wrong, I prefer to spend a few weeks on one concept rather than trying to grasp a new one each week… but in terms of making a great reflective blog post on it, I am limited in what else I can say.

Take away idea…. I am going to explore Apple’s HyperCard, never heard of that before.
