dividing the linear...   

What follows is an essay i wrote a number of years ago, trying to make sense of the then perceived differences between linearity and non-linearity in hypermedia and multimedia texts.

It's interesting that the essay itself takes what is essentially a linear form, however i have taken the opportunity to add hyperlinks to some of the more interesting people who have informed it. Unfortunately a number of the text's that i referenced on the web are no longer available, such is the rather transient nature of the internet.

It's quite odd coming back to this after 6 years, the multimedia landscape has been changed completely with the arrival of the web, and I had a real feeling of "did i really write that...?"
