"This trajectory [of the term _interactive_] is typical of industrial terms appropriated by analysts of technoculture... and shows how commercial rhetoric is accepted uncritically by academics.... The word _interactive_ operates textually rather than analytically, as it connotes various vague ideas of computer screens, user freedom, and personalized media, while denoting nothing. [...] To declare a system interactive is to endorse it with magic power" (Aarseth, Cybertext, p. 48)
if i were to write this paper i would call it "how to mean things with hyperlinks"
@aparrish I love that title! I barely understood the words in your first post in this thread, but I think I got the gist of it related to the semantic meaning of hypertext. I need to study more linguistics. 😀
