thinking again

Little recent writing about hypertext is based on careful observation of actual hypertext.

Instead, critics ventilate their fears and their ambitions . They fear the young, or the government, or Disney, or bad taste. They fear their mortality, the loss of power and memory, the political triumph of their rivals. They fear themselves.

They fear error, and so repeat the errors of the past.
