“oft-criticized, bite-sized, overlapping-little-essay style” (Levinson, 1999: 22):



Click culture. You put hypertext against Line and Print culture and wondered what it all meant. You thought about conceptualizing hypertext, the structure (the ‘machine’), as a ‘thing-in-itself’ (borrowed from Barnet, 2002), but you thought back to what was asked at the beginning of the journey. Who are you in the village? Surely more than some ‘floating consciousness’ (Barnet) or some something of the global something. Radical post-structuralist or not, when it came down to it, you couldn’t see yourself “eroding or even vanishing” (Landow, 1993: 75), could you? You looked down. You were still there.
