I'm going to be chair of the Hypertext, Culture, and Communication track at HT08, the ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia in Pittsburgh, June 19-21 2008.
I think it's time for writers to sit down again and talk about fresh explorations in literary hypertext and creative hypertext nonfiction. Let's have a workshop: remember Cyber Mountain? Let's have some good theory. Perhaps it's time to think about hypertext and performance art. And let's work on criticism: read any great hypertext lately?
There's work to be done. Let the VCs run after the box office; we have things to do. Want to get involved? Email me.
