Over the past few weeks I've been thinking a lot about the nature of hypertext (bringing in language, the mind, and UI). Recently, and more specifically, I've been trying to break my internal node/arc metaphor, which is being applied to far too many things. This morning I realised that my rate of change of thoughts on the matter has slowed down and I've reached some conclusions. It's braindump time: Thoughts on hypertext, being, some notes on what hypertext really is. (I don't bother making any practical suggestions for the www, that's the next level up. I have much clearer ideas about how information should be organised than I used to, but I have the feeling that's just the beginning of something different so that aspect is left for another time.)
