Chain saws for sculptural hypertext Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • The term "Sculptural Hypertext" refers to a style of writing hypertext where the document author starts with a massively connected structure, and the task of authoring links consists of cutting away those links that are not wanted, much as someone sculpting in stone in the traditional way starts with a block of stone and forms an image by cutting away the "excess" material. On the other hand, the opposing term "Calligraphic Hypertext" refers to the more familiar method of finely authoring each link. This paper seeks to address questions pertaining to authorship and tools for the sculptural approach to hypertext.
