Speech Title

Exercises in Links: Hypertext Style

Abstract

When we write with links, how should we think about where links are placed? Where lexia start and end? About the behavior of links? Stacey Mason and I are returning to this old topic which has been deeply neglected in recent years.

Bio

Mark Bernstein is founder and Chief Scientist of Eastgate Systems. He came to hypertext after a brief career in chemical research. A graduate of Swarthmore College, he received his Ph.D. (in physical chemistry) from Harvard University. He has managed development of the Storyspace hypertext writing environment (created by Jay David Bolter, Michael Joyce, and John B. Smith in which much early hypertext fiction was written) and designed Tinderbox, a content assistant for making, analyzing, and sharing notes. A part of nearly every ACM Hypertext Conference program committee since 1989, he has twice been its program co-chair, and was its keynote speaker in 1999.
