I have come to think of this new hypertextual process of knowledge as

"ludic academe."

Hypertext has the capability to fundamentally expand and enhance our critical endeavors.
I see it as a process that will add its own unique stamp to what and how we know.
It is a rigorous and playful critical process that rhizomatically problematizes
the balance of authority and allows readers and writers together in the same space at once,
even if they are in different places within the conversation.

For I still believe readers and writers occupy different places.

They are now just doing so in a new space and in different ways - ways that we are just beginning to explore and use and play with.
