In conclusion, hypertext changes the vantage point of the art that brings knowledge from concealment. This does not change subjectivity, but it certainly creates intersubjectivity that does not exist without this interface.
Sure, hypertext required you to abandon the luxury of your position over technology… because your choices were only as deliberate as they could be with limited knowledge of the potential outcomes. But you didn’t have to click on anything [you did, though. How did that make you feel?]. Literally, you could have read one page of news rather than several. You could have chosen to “get on with the story” (Barth).
