You, like Belinda Barnet (2002), were already convinced of the “need to locate and open points for political intervention” through hypertext. And, unlike Belinda (the self-declared party pooper of this excited rush), you felt blue-skied about the ability for users of hypertext to “leap tall hierarchies at the blink of phosphor” (Barnet, 2002: 25). Perhaps the cynics of hypertext theory (you?) were seeing this communication technology as something it was not. When your ideas were put in conversation with Stuart Moulthrop (1997) [“Common theoretical approaches [envisioned] hypertext as embodying the iconoclastic radicalism of the post-structuralists. There [was] something both familiar and irresponsible about all of this”], you felt strangely guilty, and knew not why.
