hypertext/hypermedia/literary weblogs

A colleague here at UBC asked me to assemble a short list of “interesting, inventive and creative weblogs”, particularly ones that “focus on hypertext/hypermedia/literary issues.”

I only had a bit of time, during which I compiled the selection below. I know I’m making some terrible omissions… if you care to round out the list, please add a comment, or annotate the unformatted wiki page I’ve been tossing the links into.

[BTW, I hired a student to do a CSS for my wikis, which he did… but he also recommended I install a more comprehensive suite such as SnipSnap — an excellent idea, but it’s also work, and these are frantic days, indeed.]

  • hypertext kitchen – “Fresh news about the craft of hypertext — on the Web and off.”

  • Weblog Kitchen – “a Wiki about research in weblogs, wikis, and related hypertext technologies.”
  • jill/txt – “I mostly write about the web, writing, blogging and networked literature and art.”

    1. The URL for my “Literacy Weblog” site has changed to “jerz.setonhill.edu/weblog”. Thanks for mentioning it in the first place.

      Good to have found you again, Brian. It is just about the end of Day One at SFU. Thanks again for the connection.
