ABSENT FRIENDSWhere are our stories?
Let's take a look at our hypertext bookshelf. It's large, and growing.
We have hypertexts that are old friends, now.
Hypertexts we teach to our students, hypertexts we can reread, returning to them again after long absence to find that they (and we) have changed.
The room is filled with light and tasty snacks. But, somehow, at the edges and in the gaps, there's a sense of absence, of missing friends, of hypertexts that ought to be here.
