The beginning, the first post, is not really a beginning like the first line of a novel, it is some other sort of beginning. And the links out from her blog, are they part of the blog?
And if this blog post leaves a trackback on that blogpost, automatically, who is writing what, now? And we can arrange the material by category, tag, month, or just default reverse chronological order. So there is no privileged structure to your blog, unlike, say, an essay or a novel. Abby has some good comments and then uses TV as a way to think about how audiences have changed in relation to texts.
It is not a choose your own adventure, it is more poetic and complex than this. Think of a novel, think of paragraphs. In a novel they have one set of relations, they are serial and fixed.
But if a system lets that paragraph maybe sometimes happen after that one, or that one, then how we write, what we write, and how we read, and what a text is, or become strange and different.
Abby has another post and here I think the observation that we no longer consume or use media in a linear way is a really important point. As new media professionals we often make the mistake that audiences will treat what we make the way we treat what we make. Politely, from beginning to end, not doing anything else. This is how people will use what you make. You can make a 20 minute short film and imagine everyone watching it full screen, headphones on, paying strict attention.
But apart from an end of year screening, you and your family, and a small group of afficiandos, everyone else will watch it however. With several windows open, doing several things, not at full screen sorry, you do not own my computer screen. Lucy has an excellent quote from Landow about the 4 axes he proposes around the things that hypertext narrative plays with or uses. What is missing is the machine.
In hypertext there is reader choice, but I can also make the computer decide things programmatically too. Lucy has another post too, and the really important idea in this is power. Writing is power, authors have authority. This is power. In hypertext and the Web generally the traditional role of power in relation to media, use, consumption is radically altered.
In the case of hypertext even in the very form of the work where the author must surrender their authority to control order, in any absolute sense. This is a conversation about power. Who has power, and why.
