In the non-digital world this is, most often, a yes or no decision. Today’s online-connected-hypertext-instantaneous-communities provide new accessibility and  methods to engage with ideas, people, and knowledge. More than ever levels of participation, are fluid and individualized. An internet connection affords the opportunity to read, to watch, to lurk, to write, to share, to belong, to click, to create, to collaborate, to show, to communicate.

Hypertext allows us to choose how far into a subject we want to go. What the appropriate next step will be. Whether to follow the provided authorial suggestions from site to site, subject to subject; or, if we will branch off and create our own line of associations.

Much, much, more to come…
