Slide 13 of 127
People misunderstand hypertext because they misunderstand stories.
They believe that stories begin at the beginning. (The Illiad begins in the 9th year of the war)
They believe that each item in an argument needs to be put in its place (and what does Malden have to do with Darmstadt? What's Hecuba to him, or he to Hecuba?)
They think narrative is for entertainment. For kids.
