"Hypertext is the presentation of information as a linked network of nodes which readers are free to navigate in a non-linear fashion. It allows for multiple authors, a blurring of the author and reader functions, extended works with diffuse boundaries, and multiple reading paths."
Ted Nelson came up with the term hypertext in his work "Literary Machines" and simply defined it as "non-sequential writing". Important hypertext models and research systems include (in alphabetic order) ENQUIRE, [create HyperCard], IBIS, InterMedia, [create Memex], NoteCards and [create Xanadu].
A few hypertext resources:
- "The Memex and Beyond web site is a major research, educational, and collaborative web site integrating the historical record of and current research in hypermedia."
- The Electronic Labyrinth
