Hypertext and creative writing

  title={Hypertext and creative writing},
  author={Jay David Bolter and Michael Joyce},
Among its many uses, hypertext can serve as a medium for a new kind of flexible, interactive fiction. Storyspace#8482; is a hypertext system we have created for authoring and reading such fiction. Interactive fiction in the computer medium is a continuation of the modern “tradition” of experimental literature in print. However, the computer frees both author and reader from restrictions imposed by the printed medium and therefore allows new experiments in literary structure. 
Control choices and network effects in hypertext systems
This paper examines how the core differences in control assumptions between monolithic hypertext systems, open hypermedia systems, and the Web, lead to different incentive structures for readers and content providers and hence varying levels of network effects.
What is Hypertext Authoring?
A systematic literature review and analysis of all the papers published in ACM Hypertext and ICIDS that describe a distinct authoring activity is presented, finding seventeen papers that between them cover six common activities: Training/Support, Planning, Visualising/Structuring, Writing, Editing, and Compiling/Testing.
The StoryPlaces Platform: Building a Web-Based Locative Hypertext System
The StoryPlaces platform is an open source locative hypertext platform and authoring tool designed around a sculptural hypertext engine and built with existing Web technologies that demonstrates the effectiveness of a general platform for delivering complex locative narrative experiences.
Logue: Unitizing Interactive Fictions for Co-creation
The Logue system is presented, which breaks down fiction into small episodes and tags them with metadata, making actionable units to empower co-creators and demonstrate that Logue can help creators not only structure the intricate storylines of co-created content but also provide diverse ways of understanding the story differently by viewing it from different perspectives of metadata.
Nucleus Model for Designing Social Mindtools: Woven Stories
The results show that Loom is best suited to learning tasks where the knowledge to be processed has strong sequential relationships and knowledge that includes time series, such as is contained in stories and narratives, is most valuable for the learning tasks.
Hypertext’s meta-history: Documenting in-conference citations, authors and keyword data, 1987-2021
Conferences such as ACM Hypertext have been running for many decades and the metadata on their collected publications represent a valuable scholarly meta-history on areas such as the community’s
Storyspace, introduced at the first ACM Workshop on Hypertext in 1987, was developed as a hypertext system for exploring creative writing and for writing instruction. Uniquely among systems of that
Demonstration of Weblinks: A Rich Linking Layer Over the Web
A browser plugin called "Weblinks", which offers its users an additional and rich linking layer over the existing Web, enhances the notion of links as strings in today's Web context to links as rich objects (n-ary, unidirectional, or bidirectional), which can be created, traversed or shared by anyone using the Weblinks browser plugin.
